Until once more the songbirds sing

Until once more the songbirds sing

A Poem by Gee
"

The onset of winter

"
Winter came not meek nor mild
but with hoare frosted, bellowed breath
that coated all with thin laid ice
sending autumn to her death.

Whilst a waning sun, by summer spent,
rises barely roof ridge high
as armadas of grey galleons
sail 'cross an ever darkening sky.

And fallow fields neath purest white
trees petrified and bare,
are an epitaph to a season lost
and the beauty she did share.

I inward say, " farewell for now,
farewell 'til the birth of spring,
let me slumber deep, silently,
'til once more the songbirds sing"

Beautifully penned piece
here in a lovely flowing verse
and soft rhyme with
cadence spot on ..until
the songbirds sing ..how
poetic that line truly is

Nice work

I liked the feeling I got from reading this. it shows me why many run away from the cold but at the same time, how inspiring the cold can be. Nicely penned. tyfs

This is a beautiful poem about winter. While the arrival of spring is a rebirth, winter has a beauty of its own. Each quatrain is beautiful in its own right, and I honestly couldn't pick one over the other. They go hand-in-hand from beginning to end. Well done.

This is beautiful! Sometimes I wonder if I am the only person who truly enjoys winter. I don't mind the cold, love snow, and feel energized by the dips in temperature. This is a gorgeous homage to life's renewal, and I enjoyed it thoroughly!
