Winter Serenade

winter serenade winter serenade frozen crystal melodies ~ red cardinal chants leafless boughs sing out arias of roaring storms ~ snowdrops harmonize blasts of icy frost chanting plaintive elegies ~ daphne flowers bloom short days intone night with a solstice lullaby ~ fir trees wear white stoles shadows of springtime creep into amber twilights ~ bears snore rhythmic dreams 1-18-23 Syllables checked with www.howmanysyllables

Sam, I cannot decide which group of lines are my favorite. I think your poem would make a lovely children's book or a song. Just delightful and so pretty.

Hi Andrea! Many thanks for your lovely message - so uplifting for this heart that does love winter and all of its ambivalent contrasts! Seems winter just can't make up its mind whether to be beautiful or brutal! Take care my friend. Continued prayers and blessings coming your way!
