The season of winter is about to begin
As it does every December
With it comes the cold and chill
And holidays to remember

The chill of the winter mornings
And the frosty winter nights
Are forgotten when the Christmas season comes
With all its beautiful lights

Itís a time when friends and family
Come together to share some time
To share the blessings of their lives
A time for all to unwind

Winter is a time that is sad for some
Those lost and lonely souls
Whoís lives have gone the wrong direction
And have become filled with holes

No family or friends to speak of
No one to share their lives
No meal to share on the holidays
No children, no husbands no wives

Itís so cold under the bridge
As winter takes its hold
Itís a time for us to share what we have
If we would be so bold

With winter come the death
Of grass, and flowers and leaves
But gives the promise of new life to come
For that reason, we do not grieve

Each season brings its pleasures
None compare to winters bliss
With the birth of Jesus Christ
And the touch of the Masters kiss

So celebrate the winter season
And all that it will bring
For soon new life will emerge
As the winter, turns to spring.

I love this entry. It is lovely and flows with ease. Sweet how poetic words paint such a lovely picture here...Juanita Pittman-Brown

The stanzas of your poem that impacted me the most: stanzas 2, 5, 8, and 9, and especially the idea of "the touch of the Master's kiss." A beautiful thought! Your rhythm went off a little in places, but overall this was very nice.

I thought your poem was good that it brings to our remembrence "hope" for the "hopeless" and the opportunity to share Christ's love with others, especially during the winter season. God bless ya, littlelight

Ricky, your poem is one filled with compassion and hope. The last verse is the perfect ending too. I enjoyed reading this very much!
