A Poem

"

I had a lover
It was winter
We lay in snowy woods
With a million echoing voices
In those days

Now she is gone
It is summer
I walk alone in the forest
A million voices are singing
In these times

I am turning corners
In the winter time again
Alone in snowy woods
A million voices silent
In the here and the now

Wow! It's a really nice poem. "If a poet falls in love with you, you are immortalized forever" whoever she is, is really lucky having you write this poem and she'll always be here like a beautiful memory. For this poem it's beautiful.
Keep writing, Good Luck!

Hey, Wow, thanks
We find clarity in the cold, white of the season. Winter brings less shadows, except sometimes to the mind. And, we hear more clearly, echoes from past seasons and sometimes only silence, its own beauty. I think there's more here, perhaps reflecting on a season when love thrived, and passed with spring or summer. So much imagery and emotions in these brief lines. Well written.

Glad you liked and enjoyed this poem
I really do love this poem, but I'm an ancient cove and would more easily read your work if you used a larger font. I hope you don't think I'm being picky, but my old eyes...

Can't say the poetry got to me. My poem interpretation department is a little underdeveloped, but the simplicity of yours helps.

I think I'll stick to reviewing stories.

No worries and thanks for all your reviews 😊
To a certain degree, I like the simplicity of how your express your imagery. But my core preference would be to pump this up a bit, as far as choosing more powerful or vivid or unexpected imagery. I'm not entirely against the simple way you paint this scene, becuz I believe that the "ho-hum" nature of your word choices is intentional, since this looping poem conveys an overall sense of: "same ole, same ole" . . . so I do appreciate your total pkg. It's just a little forgettable, as far as the uniqueness of the word crafting (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

So time passes and life moves from one experience to the next... I enjoyed the use of the seasons as the backdrop to this poem of reflection...
