The true beauty of winter

Marvelled at Nature!



Before skating, Sister Beth and Sister Mary view the birds, scenery

Bright picturesque winter, the sun is nice, pleasing as can be

Sister Mary now sadly notices a coat hanger, litter and a rusted can

This kind of polluting is crudely senseless, just blame it all on man


"It’s sad that people don’t respect paradise, the joy that nature brings!"

They look around, winter is a lovely princess who delightfully sings


Across the ice, Sister Beth now points to a beaver’s den of great style

She closes her eyes to picture a beaver, he shows a big friendly smile


The daydream makes her laugh, she thinks of a beaver, amazingly smart

In her mind, that coat hanger was perfectly shaped into a stunning heart


Happy Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2010

Hope it’s filled with love, warmth and happiness!

A wonderfully enchanting poem! I absolutely love the imagery here: 'They look around, winter is a lovely princess who delightfully sings'. The world is so beautiful during winter; so delicate and quiet. Even as I write this, snowflakes are falling outside my bedroom window, so I can truly understand the beauty of your words and marvel at nature's majesty. Wonderful work =)

Interesting poem, I very much liked the end. :) You provided very nice imagery. The only thing I really had a problem with was second stanza " "It’s sad that people don’t respect paradise, the joy that nature brings!" || They look around, winter is a lovely princess who delightfully sings" The second part of it didn't make sense to me, but perhaps that's only me. :) Otherwise very nice poem, well written and a nice idea behind it.

I wish I was around on Booksie when St Vals came and went to be one of the first to comment on this story-filled piece.
