Winter Blues

Winter Blues

A Poem by Gee
"

Simple words

"
Today the sun laboured to barely half sky height,
a long summer's exertions seemingly wearying it's ascent
before it slid slowly to the horizon,
casting shadows long and eastward.
Trees that were lit like beacons
as autumn died its beautiful death
stood stark, arthritic, naked,
their branches grasping for a warmth now gone.
A lone crow cawed, it's cry haunting
as it echoed through the copse,
before trailing off into the distance across fields now barren,
summers harvest long since reaped.
In the coming weeks, months, all will be dusted white,
crisp underfoot, as winter slowly, surely takes hold.
I shivered, pulled my collar around my ears,
" roll on spring " I uttered...........

Consider will instead of would? Apologies, just the maniac inside speaking. Still enjoyed immensely.

Cheers Maxwell, change done...
I agree! Come Spring--quickly!

Fall did not do us justice in Ohio. No high colors yet.
Winter so dreary with the monotones and the chill.
You capture it here.

You're welcome!
Far more than "simple words" here, Gee. I could feel the chill in the air as I read your imagery packed words. Yes, winter is coming to many areas now and many will long for that first warmth of Spring to return. Wonderful write. Lydi**

The exact words I said this morning when I had to scrape the car. Though there were a few expletives when I couldn't find the bloody scraper. Why do we always wait for a summer that never comes.

Well, Gee. You did well. I didn't even checked this out until you came around my page. I wish WC introduces new poem elaborately.

You work is interesting... You maintain the flow, the focus, and the theme: Weather. Well done, Gee.

Cheers, appreciate the review
Bleak, mournful fall imagery as harbinger of impending winter freeze. Great personification of tired sun and dying trees. Crow sounding a dark call- like Poe’s Raven. Ominous and beautiful poem. Going back under the comforter soon!
