Deep Freeze

The rain forms to snow crystals

as it falls down in midair

The rapid freeze shockingly

is something that is rare

 

The ice that is left behind

from the few days of sun

Is now my peril because of the freeze

All that is outdoors; there is no fun

 

I hope for the day the sun stays

when it comes and doesn't go away

It can melt the snow and ice

Oh, yes, that will be the day!

 

But for the next few months

snow is in my future to be sure

Looking forward to April and May

Because Spring is my only cure

    Lovely easy style - thankfully here in middle England snow is but an occasional visitor but we suffer damp gray days which are so depressing - roll on the spring.

      You are so lucky, my friend! But thank you for the reply. Very appreciated!

      What Michael said. Snow is only here occasionally in middle England and as far as I am concerned is best seen on photographs.

      • Christina8

        You are lucky as well but it can be beautiful. Mostly a hinderance. Thanks for your thoughtful reply!

          Ohhhhh CHRISTINA ~ what a way to go
          Have you not enjoyed the TREASURES of the SNOW !
          We keep our BUNNIES warm in their hutch
          I understand the problem ~ You get TOO MUCH
          Our only day of SNOW is GONE
          Now we get none !

          What a STATE you are in CHRISTINA ! Perfect in Spring & Summer & Autumn ~ I love the pictures from your STATE website ~ BUT there is always a price to pay and the SNOWBIRDS from Your State ~ now all spend an extra MONTH (March) in Sunny TAMPA ~ Florida ! I guess FRED had the best idea ~ when he moved to HAWAII ! Snow is strictly for the under 20's ~ So I accept your MOAN ~ Keep Warm ~ Keep Happy ~ WARM HUGS ~ Brother Brian ~ Its 55F here ! ******* (snow flake hugs !)

            Loved your reply! At least we are safe from tornadoes and hurricanes and floods! We just happen to have a lot of ice right now which prohibits safe travels and fun in the snow. I am staying happy though! Appreciate the wonderful feedback! Sister Christina

                  Very nicely written, Christina! Reminds me of the 'freezing rain' we often had during the winter months in Montreal, Canada. Even the smallest tree branches covered by ice, made them look like diamonds in the sunshine.

                  • Christina8

                    Beautiful reply Fred! I really appreciate it! Thanks so much!

                    Christina, the imagery in this is awesome. You paint the scene from the very first line and it continues from there. The emotion is well-driven too. I could feel the cold seep through your well chosen words. Hopefully, Spring pops up before you know it! Great poem; your rhythm and flow is always perfection! Happy to read your words today :)

                    • Christina8

                      I am so grateful for your review! It's humbling! You don't know how much I appreciate it. Thanks so much!
