Poem in Blue


The cold winter winds come
From my heart,
Chilling skin, frosting windows
With my breath.

Always winter within
The snow blows so cold
Next to my heart.
Memories are covered,
Drifted down,
Buried, but sometimes
It feels (burried)

The chill lies in a line of fire
Piercing everything
Even the bones of marrow
As snow plows harrow a row
So we can be, '' must on the go ''

Damned there be one spark of warmth
One thought of a living green
The smiles of believing dreams
Or skies of summer blue

    Wonderful poem, it made me think of my childhood in New Jersey during the winter. Loved the winter as a child, now not so much, that's why I'm living in Arizona. This is a feel good poem of remembrance. Thank you for sharing it. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    And the snow cover my soul
    My body all white hold
    Ice man may look like me
    Frozen, unmoved, heartless
    Stun by the memory of December
    Mid July may frozen in me now
    From feeling blue, but in poem it does_Soul (Report) Reply

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
