Where willows sway

Where willows sway in wintry woe Sunrise shimmers on falling snow While crimson dawn in scarlet rays Glimmers the face of morning’s haze As new day smiles on golden glow On whirling winds white flurries blow Autumn's remnants in frozen throe While winter shudders frosted glaze Where willows sway Giggling blue streams struggle to flow On thawing prairie’s splendid show As snowflakes glisten parched malaise Clueless that soon spring will amaze When in meadows blossoms will grow Where willows sway Written: March 6, 2021 Submitted on November 11, 2022 to: Placed 9th: 2022 Poetry Marathon Mile 20 Poetry Contest Sponsor: Mark Toney Placed 1st: All Yours (March 8) by Brian Strand

Dear Vijay, your Rondeau dances in rhythm with beautiful imagery and rhymes. The lilt of your verses bring me to "where willows sway in wintry woe" - until "when in meadows blossoms will grow" - simply divine poetry! Congratulations for your excellent win in Mark's contest. Warmest wishes, my friend.. ~Susan

Ah, Vijay, your lovely poetry took me back to my childhood in the Wisconsin snow. We had willows in our yard and the surrounding area. A Fav for me. Congratulations on your win on Mile 20 of my 2022 Poetry Marathon Contest. Keep your running shoes on because Mile 21 has already started.

This is so alliterative like Edgar Allen Poe's poems.... ! The refrain "where willows sway" gives a magical symphony to the poem.
