When Winter Comes

When winter comes there's wind, rain, bitter cold
There's white everywhere from frost, ice, and snow
Bare tree limbs are tossed by strong winds that blowww
Close to the hearth tales of yore oft are told
'Twas not so in the spring when all is fresh_ new
When love is on the wing; trees' young leaves green
All is simple at those times of sixteen
So much so now that life is in review

Then summer came crops were ripe for harvest
Young limas were gathered by the bushel
The corn's tassels were now filled with full ears
Then ends that part of life a busy quest
Fall's panty filled now; plans made for bethel
Winter by the fire remembering years

finis'

    Good start, now just make your last six lines!!! It should be making some twist or resolution to the first part. Do you read a lot of Emily Dickinson? I bet her poetry is a great example of Italian sonnet.

    Nice winter's song, you have almost done it...the Italian sonnet, sara

    The Italian Sonnet is very difficult to master, but when done correctly it can pack a great punch! You have started off a terrific poem here my friend, a very awesome write! Keep up the flow of this piece and you should have a very well written poem! Great Work!!
