An overture to winter's frosty breath, September oft colors my thoughts in gray It signals winter's cold and summer's death, Casting its somber spell on me this day Like witches brew in ancient play Macbeth 9-9-2022 Remember September Poetry Contest Sponsor: Andrea Dietrich

Joseph, I think this is beautiful writing. I was hoping more for personal memories but I sure got a lot of gems on September descriptions such as this one. Congrats in my contest.

"Like witches brew in ancient play Macbeth." Exactly ! ! I can't believe it's that time of year again. Autumn is a festive season, indeed. Your words curl around every season but Spring, which is fascinating to me. You've certainly set the mood for September. My best to you, Joseph. Hugs, Brandy

If I were to have a calculated guess, I would say that you definitely prefer Summer, but you describe Winter so aptly. Hugs and blessings Joseph, Jennifer.
