The poem(s) are below...



You beneath a midnight sky
With tears of crystal
Falling from your eyes

Dressed in a cape of glistening white
With your haunting beauty all aglow
In the pale moonlight

So still and so silent 
You lie at my feet 
The only sound is the sound 
This spellbound heart beats

Gone is your rage of yesterday 
When you threw the world
Into a state of disarray 

When you with your breath
Blew a kiss of death
Tearing the leaves
From those beautiful trees
Killing your rival

So weep my beauty weep
Your insincere tears
Now that you find
Yourself all alone
And wait for Spring
To melt a heart
Cold and hard as stone

Congratulations Elaine! Your poem earned a distinguished place in my contest, this contest had 75 poems entered and yet your poem rose to the top ten, you should be proud of your placing, this was a very difficult contest to judge, but your poem caught my eye, well done my friend, Emile.

It's so weird. I tried to go to the yellow door poem again. It's as if cursed for me. I can't see it this time but I read it previously and was not able to comment. Remember I told you at SOupmail? Ok, I can comment to this one, so let me read it now!

A true pleasure reading this wonderful descriptive piece Winter and its effects on this world and us. Closing stanza to me is icing on the cake. A fav, a true beauty. God bless..
