Jacks cold nose(winter)

Jacks cold nose(winter)

A Poem by Gee
"

A winter morning

"
Now all is touched by Jacks cold nose,
dusted white the neat hedgerows,
where spiders webs, hang, iced in place,
like doilies spun from finest lace.

Whilst trees arthritic, stark and bare,
reach for a warmth no longer there,
from a diluted sun, in wintery skies,
as the last of Autumn, fades and dies.

This is a beautiful winter scene drawn in well-chosen words. Love the way winter is personified & love the rhyming. There's a melancholy tone that comes across & reminds me of the blue mood of deep winter. Glad our winters are brief & mild here in California! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

It seems so much falls into the long time ago category.
Thanks

Lovely simple descriptions,Gee, that convey the scene perfectly, but my favourite is your original concept of frosted spiders' webs resembling doilies.

This conjures images from years long past when the very young me first marveled at nature's intricate crystalline handiwork. "This Jack Frost, how does he do it?
Very good writing, Gee.
