I smiled when snowy petals fell, So cold and wet against my eye. The frost of age — its spellbound knell. My waning wake; it’s densely spry. My age old tongue catches the drift. Soft wrap, about my arms, a gift. Fresh scent, a lift — newborn adorned. The clefts, where light does land, forewarned. When I smiled, snowy petals fell Against my eye, so cold and wet. The spellbound knell, its frost of age, It’s densely spry, my waning wake. My wobbly knees snowspent,* they cry To gentle Lord before I die.

Kim, beautiful poetry as usual. It's probably my fault for not explaining it well enough, but the format was just a little off (My apologies). Anyway, congratulations on your placement in my contest. I hope all is well. Hugs Charlie
