Winter is here to stay


The icy blast stings my cheeks

Snowflakes whipping at me, its been weeks

But this time winter is here to stay

I want it warm but I'm not getting my way


All signs of autumn are gone

In my backyard I see a doe and her fawn

All the animals in search of food

The trees about to be stripped nude


Now snowflakes the size of nickles fall

Adding up accumulations inches tall

The wind has died down for today

And the children run outside to play

    First substantial snowfall here. People forget how to drive. Took twice as long to get to work! Welcome winter. Very warm and cheerful poem in spite of the cold.

                  Wintery imagery I don't get in the South.

                  • Christina8

                    It can be quite beautiful when the snowflakes are falling and they're really big. Not so pleasant in a blizzard. Thanks Augustus.
