    This one is like a sonnet from an English textbook, and I mean this as a compliment. The vocab, the form rhe style and the content, everything about it makes me want to print it and in a piece of paper, analyze it :)

    Been in a bit of a grump tonight but this cheered me up somewhat.

    It's rather gorgeous. Some of us like winter. You have to admit, that when she dances round the land she leaves a beautiful trail behind.

    It's kinda pure

    regards as always


    Ps that warm snap was nice but it just didn't seem right.

      Craig, you were right - I should have listened to you. Winter's not done with us yet, is she?

    Ben, you had me at 'demurely'. Another work of art for us to feast our eyes and ears on.

    Hey Ben, nice twist for Mother Nature's icy stinging kiss. I don't miss those cold snowy days from up North, but, remember the stunning beauty of the tree branches covered with ice, shimmering in the Sunshine, with a soft blanket of snow covering the ground.
    Nice work, added to my Favorites.

    Another outstanding sonnet, Ben. Gloriously penned as always. I find your verb use extremely extensive.
