Winter ~ December - January - February has many compensations in the UK including Christmas ~ New Year Celebrations & Burns Night especially in Scotland !  When it snows the barren Landscape is transformed into a *Winter Wonderland* !  Then there are all the impromptu Winter Sports.  Snowballing - Sliding - Ice Skating & Tobogganing etc etc. Let it Snow ~ Let it Snow ~ Let it Snow !

      A grand acrostic highlighting the wonders of winter which helps to explain the seasonal differences at this time of year - we here in the extreme south west very rarely see white flakes as the weather is milder but I remember the fun snow brought in the Cotswolds when we flew down the hills with sledged delight......... thank you for sharing and bringing back memories......... stay well and warm dear duo.

        Good Monday FAY ~ Angela Here ~ No more Clinics today so enjoying a cup of Earl Grey & a KITKAT and catching up on MPS. WE like to get in early (Pole Position today !) so we get TWO WHOLE Days exposure ! Pleased you enjoyed the Poem and it trigered memories of the Cotswolds ! Friends of ours have just moved near Stowe from Enfield - London ! They hope to get a bit of STOWE ~ SNOW !
        There is always a bit of discussion on MPS as to *What constitutes a Poem* ? WE all agree it should have a SUBJECT and a TITLE - which gives an indication of the SUBJECT ! WE often bother to read a Poem because of an intriguing TITLE. We read yours because of the AUTHOR !
        WE also feel that a TRUE POEM (as distinct from PROSE) Should have STRUCTURE & STYLE ! That is if there are THREE VERSES they should have the same RHYTHM (syllable pattern = Blank Verse) and if they RHYME the same RHYME PATTERN. Yours always do ! This makes them delightful to look at = to Read & to Recite. This is why Classical Forms - like Pantoums & Villanelles are such a delight to Write - Read & Recite and also Eastern forms like HAIKU etc ! Even Purists are allowed a little Poetic License so BRIAN & I call all our 14 line Poems ~ SONNETS ! If they are unrhymed we do try to maintain a strict meter (Rhythm) as in todays POEM !

        Blessings Love Joy & Peace
        Angela Brian & Smokey ! ! !

        While some may think of Winter as barren and desolate, it is in earnest a season to regenerate.

        Entertaining indeed

        good read, took me on a brief nostalgia trip to winter's where we had a chance at two or three snow falls,
        fun times - with side by side snow angel rings aplenty and memory's of snowman's built to a background chorus of laughter's warmth

        Aye, some say it's grin up north but it sounds like you know the value of a frozen lakeland vista,... Say Grizedale Pike to Skiddaw. Beautiful reflections and fine verse thanks.
