Winter

Winter

A Poem by emipoemi

 

Winter! Winter!

Sending shivers through my skin!

Winter! Winter!

With the wind I cannot win!

 

Winter! Winter!

Very blurry, bleak, and bare!

Winter! Winter!

 Ev’ry breath wafts through the air!

 

(O) Winter! Winter!

Writhing in unease untold!

Winter! Winter!

Wrapped in blankets sevenfold!

(hhh-ha! hhh-ha!)

God d****t it’s so cold-

God is merciful!

Keep in mind

God is merciful!

He is kind!

He will stop the wind of Winter

Sending shivers through my skin,

But it’s such a piercing splinter,

With the wind I cannot win!

 

hhh-ha! hhh-ha!

hhh-ha-a-hh-ha-a-ha!

hhh-ha! hhh-ha!

hhh-ha-a-hh-ha-a-ha!

 

Winter! Winter!

Chatter, splutter, whine, and wail!

Winter! Winter!

Achy, worn, and deathly pale!

 

(hhh-ha!)

 

Winter! Winter!

So inane to be outside!

Winter! Winter!

Nowhere anyone can hide!

 

(O) Winter! Winter!

 Writhing in unease untold!

Winter! Winter!

Wrapped in blankets sevenfold!

(hhh-ha! hhh-ha!)

God d****t it’s so cold-

God is merciful!

Keep in mind

God is merciful!

He is kind,

He will stop the wind of Winter

Sending shivers through my skin!

But it’s such a piercing splinter,

With the wind I cannot win!

 

hhh-ha! hhh-ha!

hhh-ha-a-hh-ha-a-ha!

hhh-ha! hhh-ha!

hhh-ha-a-hh-ha-a-ha!

 

Winter!

With the wind I cannot win!

I love the format of this poem! Also, you have mastered punctuations in this poem. Especially, the parentheticals and exclamation points. It all comes together in a really rhythmic and pretty poem! Good job!
