Winter’s Love

Winter came and with it frost and flake
And some of it had landed on our trees
And yard and all and froze our lake
In winter white and sapphire breeze

Some said the pine and spruce
Expressed to beauty thieves
Could see to none a truce
For winter covered its leaves

Few could see the glory
I said the contrary held weight
They knew so little of the snow’s story
The flakes were beauty’s winter mate

And don’t you fret- I’m no outlander
To say that ill a shrub was miffed
In spite of it, I did hear gleeful sounds
The leaves in rustle, the flakes adrift...

The joy! The speckled sapling!
The conifers have danced!
Bedecked are they- and sleeping now
And gracefully enhanced

They’re lovers! One can clearly tell
The snow and winter trees
Who wait and are at mercy
Of the darkest winter breeze❄️

Editing stage: 


Welcome to the site. I like your images,
your ability to get it to the reader.

but ... your first line;
I'm stopped after "it"
do you mean it to be;

Winter came, and with it, frost and flake?
If so I would suggest using punctuation
to direct the reader.
Another suggestion would be to remove
unneeded words like, (and, with, our) and replace
them with added color to your picture.through out
the poem. This practice will serve you well in future poems.

for instance, your winter could "roll" in

just suggestions, welcome again


I was sure that the rhythm was a bit ragged here and there, but after reading it a time or two out loud, I got the flow.
Since you have not really asked for critique, I won't attempt it. I do feel that you would do well in our February contest, which is about an early Spring. Be sure that you read the parameters and join us for a Spring rite. [Pun intended]. ~ Geezer.

Comments and critique are vital to this site!
Even if you just say: I liked this story or your spelling
of a word is wrong, take the time to write a line or two
and comment. Your fellow poets will thank you!
