Sometimes, we all get a case of the winter blues. This was a poem I had written in the middle of winter, when the coldness was taking away from time outside. I was feeling a bit “under the weather” and striving to keep even my house plants in tip top shape. So as poetry does for me, it inspires. Plus, spring is luckily right around the corner! (Please do not think I only view winter as bad season, it too is beautiful, and allows appreciation for the warmer seasons). Oh, winter.
Oh winter, why must you take me away?
Your leaving ambitions, and desires astray
The view from my window; melancholy as can be
The white snow flutters, and it’s all you can see
The slippery road, and the solemn dead trees
Wanting to sit outside, but indubitably would freeze
Oh winter, why must you pull out my heart?
All of my goals and my dreams, I’m unable to start
Why are you so cold? Please let summer step in
Your filling the world with nothing short of sin
The smell of the rain, a kiss from the sun
It all seems so farfetched.. as you take away fun
Oh winter, I’m sorry but you must change your ways
So all of my ambitions, and desires, will not stay astray-
