Rains of Winter

Rains of winter are often  tiring
As well as relentlessly unending.
Our poet finds them uninspiring.
She regrets hours she has been spending
On poetry, tiring and unending.

She tries to hit a lighter note
By turning to reading of the bards.
Comparing them to what she wrote
Is a swift turning of the cards.
She wishes she wrote like the bards.

The reading brightens somber mood,
And brings sunshine into the room.
Her own lines now are looking good.
She has shaken off the clouds of gloom.
Gone, somber mood and clouds of gloom

    i like this poem very much, joyce! it's tricky comparing our own poetry to anyone else's but i hope that you're proud of your own work because i'm sure you have many fans here (i am one of them!).

    Oh how I wish the dull days would go and we get sunshine back in our lives and feel uplifted and rejuvenated once more - I can really relate to this but I turn to the poems of others here rather than the bards:-) Hugs Jan xx a 7 from me:-) xx
