Winter - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

As winter comes again this year,
its breath turns dewdrops into ice.
Out in the forest freeze the deer
our houses, refuges for mice.

The snow brings happiness and joy
for many girls and every boy,
with grace and silence it descends,
for autumn storms it makes amends.

The farmer leaves alone his soil
and Mr. Chevron brings the oil
to heat the inside of your house
and keep you warm, also the spouse.

Before you know, the winter must
pack up, it sends a final gust.
And when you hear the robins sing
your heart fills with the warmth of Spring.

And this procedure comes each year
ye Gods must have a special reason.
From what I've seen it does appear
that winter is my favourite season.

    A lovely poem. If winter was always crisp and cold I would entirely agree. Sadly it is, more often than not, wet, windy and unpleasant. (Report) Reply

    Great poem Herbert! Michigan is notorious for bad winters......but I love it! It's fun driving on the ice, and having 2ft of snow covering your car when you wake up! How beautiful. sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    I can't say It's mine Herbert, but I like it around Christmas time, if there's a nice layer of snow! Pleasant reading. Sincerely Ernestine (Report) Reply
