Magpie #42 In 55 Words-Why Not Enjoy Life's Winter?



Snow falls tumbling down,
The sun gives a frown;
Trees make a cold stare,
As cars pump smoke in the air;
Snow crunches beneath our feet,
As snowmen are built down the street;
Icy wind makes a lonely howl,
The moon remains modest like an owl...
There's only ONE winner,
Why not enjoy life's winter?

Eric Alder said...

Nice ode to Winter, Jingle.

I must mention that I had volunteered to host the Friday 55 if G-Man wanted me to do so, but he instead decided that everybody deserved a week off from 55 writing.

(If anybody includes one in their comments Friday, I'll still post it. But it won't be an official G-Man sanctioned Friday 55)

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Lovely poem about winter, I love to feed the wild life during winter,
Happy Thanksgiving Day.

Very nice Jingle. Here in southern New Mexico, I don't ever get to see a winter wonderland like you depict. Enjoyed reading your poem.

Judie said...

Jingle, thanks for a beautiful poem and a beautiful post. I don't want to appear greedy, so I am taking only one award, the butterfly, and am putting it on my post with a link back to yours.

I love the moon that's like an owl:)

Appreciate your boundless energy and love for life, Jingle. You've given time unselfishly to others, awards, reminders and all. Thank you.

So nice to look forward to winter but sadly no winter here. However, we do have the sun throughout the year, similar as in the exotic South Seas and Hawaii!

A beautiful rhyme about the winter season, listing many seasonal things we all find pleasin'. :o)

Rhyme Me a Smile

Dom* said...

It is in my dream I do awake
When I am up I see a snowflake
Coming and blanketing as it hits the ground
Blowing and tumbling without a sound
So Now I see this pure and clear
The white stuff has landed for another year

enjoy my Dearest Jingle and Happy Friday to you as well(+)

Kristin said...

Hi Jingle!
Thank you for your sweet message! Happy Holidays (okay, you are the first I have said that to, LOL) to you too - and I love this poem - you are so talented! xoxo

KB said...

I'm so happy it's summer here, hehe!

Janis@Open My Ears Lord said...

Winter is always welcome for me. I love the chill in the air, a cozy fireplace, warm sweaters and sweatshirts.
Of course, it doesn't get too cold here in Arizona. If it snows, it rarely sticks for more than an hour! So we get the beauty without the work. But we pay for it with our hot winters.
Thanks for visiting.

Margaret Bednar said...

Great use of 55 words - If one lives where it is snowy and chilly, one had better embrace it! I did that for many, many years. However, I was very happy to give my snowshoes away when we moved south! :)

Nora Johnson said...

Beautiful poem & great awards - you're so generous!

Happy Thanksgiving & a great weekend too!

XOXO Lola:)

Why not, indeed!....although I've had enough winter in my life to enjoy a balmy January!

Lourie said...

Winter in Southern CA is pretty easy so I am all for it. I like to watch the snow fall, it's relaxing and soothing. But I wouldn't trade it. hehe. Love the Magpie! Have a great week!

Julie Jordan Scott said...

What a great question to end with, Jingle. Lovely.
