My Garden Tree
The cold winds now crying low have spanned the storm tossed sea to remove the last and faded leaves from my bare branched garden tree The canopy of refreshing shade in the days of Summer Sun taken now and blown away now that Autumn time is spun And the World now turns around to hard Winter's bitter light a harbinger of the coming snows to turn my garden's verdure white The Sun's rays now slanting cold beneath clouds of sheeted greys casting shadows on my Winter land and my garden's sleeping days I will now await the springtime days when the snowdrops rise to bloom and the evenings gain some added time an end to Winter's frigid gloom and my bare branched garden tree will be clothed in leaf once more as the early Summer breezes come dancing from the shore

 I like .... it brought me back to my own garden.   Right now it's covered with fall leaves, rotting and mixing with the soil.  Next year's meal for my plants.  The flower garden by the front door already has plants coming up.  Dog gone you.  Now I'm getting excited about getting the garden going and we are still at least two months away from planting.  It's going to be hard to wait.
neat poem

Thomas, this is very compelling, the impending white shroud, followed by the verdant promise of the thaw. Long time, no see. Welcome back.

Lovely, very descriptive of Winter's way with nature.  My favorite part is that it is hopeful in the knowledge your garden shall once again be overflowing with beauty.  Tina
