Beautiful celestial crystals grip the earth by the neck And all servants of shiver on the skin pore deck. A Tit in elegance flaps her leathery wings And sings all blessings that winter brings. Nude trees coated by soft pile of snow Stand in awe and worship the silvery glow. The Robins can never be left out, The sweethearts of the very cold sprout Dressed in orange-red and glittering brown feathers And offer adoration to the cold weather. No charmer like the winter's silvery gown That carpets the dull face of every town. THEME: WINTER SCENERY. For Francine Roberts' contest: A winter couplet

Joseph, this is delightful. I especially loved that final couplet, the silver gown that carpets the dull face of every town! Luv, Andrea

Outstanding imagery, Joey! I love the thought of the robins "offering adoration" to winter and the last two lines are very, very creative! Francine will love your entry too. Best wishes in her contest and I hope you enjoy a happy Thanksgiving! Love, Carolyn
