Winter Song  


 Soft the sonata of winter,
a hush of snowflakes all around.
Sweet and clear is the melody;
whispering breezes, psalms of sound.

 Crystalline the chimes of winter,
diamond bright and all aglow;
frozen trees play quivering chords,
percussion the shimmering snow.

 Exquisite the songs of winter,
pure, peaceful voices throng the air;
empty your mind, listen awhile,
God’s symphony is everywhere.

Just what I need
A really lovely seasonal piece Stella, I find that Christmas as we knew it is only remembered by the Older generation so it is a treat to read something that covers that era. Winter is fast becoming very different than it used to be but then so is everything. Thanks for putting me back on form. Take care Rod.

Thank you Rod, as i get older i do look for beauty in everything, especially the seasons ;even winter does have its own lovely moments .

I can identify
Stella, it has snowed up and down the whole east coast of the US these past few days, so your offering rang true for me. Liked very much the musical theme and imagery. Good work.

Thank you John, sometimes the best music is made from the quietest of moments..

Beautiful and Melodious!
A beautiful poem filled with musical quality. First off, I enjoyed the rhyme and alternating rhyme pattern. Also enjoyed how winter was portrayed as a song throughout the poem and the various elements that compose winter equated to a symphony. There was also a lot of beautiful imagery especially in the second stanza. An enjoyable poem! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much Edwin for your lovely comments

nice poem
Your poem reminds of the early morning winter stillness that happens just when the sun start to glisten, reflecting the ice particles on trees and across the blanket of snow. I liked your poem even though for the past few years there always seems to be a wind. I think it reminded me of my childhood days when winters were somehow different. Keep up the good work.

Thank you, and yes i too have noticed that we seem to have more windy weather than we used to.Winter can be so very beautiful
