A Spring's Mourning

by Dixiedaisy   Sep 30, 2010

There is something
about Winter
that brings solace
to her soul


a time of remembrance.
that particular Spring
didn't offer.

Reflections of past times
when family was
center in her world.

-Yet again-

the raw beauty of December
when Mother Nature
has stripped away
her coats and coverings
in celebration of freedom.


of Fred and Ginger
dancing in the rain
She compares herself
to the disguise
nature dons
during a time
likened to rebirth.


words are they...
Springtime bliss.
For her
that is when
beloved passed
And since,
she has loathed
everything related

-She longs-

longs for Winter's kiss,
When snow shall mask
her saddest memory.

    Within our rememberance of humman time, these two season are the oposing roles in wich you have shown us here. we normally see spring has a time for joy and play, not pain and longing, and winter is usaully very somber and quiet. I absolutly love this poem, its beautiful. You are an amazing poet, and you show your best in work like this. Keep up the poetry, keep up the good work

    Symbolic sprang to mind when I was reading this poem perhaps because I am at that age when I am in the winter of my life.
    Though this poem did not make me feel cold though as you get older the to many people that you have love depart you.
    Like Twisted and Ingid the last verse does ring true

    longs for Winter's kiss,
    When snow shall mask
    her saddest memory

    An excellent poem 5/5 RayS
