Heart shivered
as jack frost
remained unfaithful,
my admirer; spring

    Hello Andrea,

    I do like an acrostic, especially the sneaky ones. :) As for the poem - I know you are a nature lover and this reflects in much of your poetry. This poem speaks of tender spring plants who succumb to the late frosts. We too have experienced this phenomenon, plants such as spring bulbs suffering at the hand of frost. One imagines such a sweet crocus feeling victimised at the hand of Jack. This harmful behaviour, sadly, also occurs in human nature, such as a young child being harmed at the hand of an abuser.

    Very nice work. x

    If this is obvious, then please excuse me! Was it purposeful to spell ' harm ' down the side, or was it an absolutely brilliant mistake? I'll place my bets with the former, lol
    I loved this. The imagery and metaphor - as well as the title - are all wonderful. Excellent :)

      Keira, you are brilliant! I meant to do that yes, harm is a major part of the message, it's my silent acrostic message. Thank you!!
