Everything sleeps
Through their winter dreams
The world is a blanket
Of sunlit white.
The only sound
Is a sparrow
Calling to a friend
In an Old Stone Age birch
Come fly with me
Is so distinct
Then he glides
Through the morning
I wish I had wings.
The winter queen
With outstretched hand
Paints the land
With the purest form.
While we all sleep
Our winter dreams away.

Winter is really tough on me but one cannot dispute the beauty of the season. The portion about the sparrow was what I liked best about this poem. The winter queen stayed too darn long this year...I hope she is finally fast asleep. Lovely poem John. =))

Winter is a petty time of year ..with all the power snow...But cold weather and I just don't  connect..
. but give me Summer and fall.. that my favorite time...
