A Windy Winter: A Poem


The wind whispers and whistles,

Wafting pleasant aromas through the midnight garden,

The silvery moon watches over the scene below,

Putting a glowing spotlight on the wintry woods,

Bleak and bare, the trees stand as a high-walled fortress,

Guarding the garden full of frosted grass,

Waiting for springtime blooms when the warmth returns.

Interesting that I should read this right after my coldest day. As I read each line could feel it, or see it.


Nathan Bernardo from California, United States of America on January 08, 2014:

Pamela is correct, very good use of alliteration. You have made good use of sound, feeling and imagery; pulls the reader into the poem and elicits feeling and pictures.

Lovely alliteration. You've painted quite a scene. Voting up.
