( A Millenium) Frozen in Time

Glowing sky alight with snow
Falling upon the ground below
Covering the past with a virgin veil
A quiet breeze overcoming a gale

Shed a tear, found it frozen in place
Trembling hands feel it upon my face
A tribute to the pace of many years
A release of anguish, guilt and fears

Peeled the tear from its cold embrace
Warmth then filled the missing space
Tossed the refuse of time aside
Continuing onward, moonlight as my guide

Snow packed over a riverbed
Crunched below my heavy tread
Awaiting the breath of life again
To awaken the hearts and minds of men

Something about winter is magic.

And you write of winter's white
while you play in Sunshine bright?

Good job!

Well Amanda, winter can be like that, life and hope can seem pretty thin on the ground in those winter months but then there is always spring and summer just around the corner. but winter can be beautiful,I think you represented both sides prefectly its beauty and darkness. fantastic poem.

 That time of year thou mayst in me behold, When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang, Upon those boughs which shake against the cold, Bare ruined choirs where late the sweet birds sang. In me thou see'st the twilight of such day, As after sunset fadeth in the west, Which by-and-by black night doth take away, Death's second self that seals up all in rest. In me thou see'st the glowing of such fire, That on the ashes of his youth doth lie, As the deathbed whereon it must expire, Consumed with that which it was nourished by. This thou perciev'st, which makes thy love more strong, To love that well which thou must leave ere long.
William Shakespeare
