( poem by my ex ... from 1971 ) This is the only poem of hers that I have left to remember her soul
It was published in the 'London Free Press' ... can't remember for what occasion ... transcribed from the clipping ...

Winters Heart
~~~

With summer flowers dying
The leaves will soon be dead
Then winter creeps upon us
'Tis the coldness most
I dread
~
When the icy breath of winter
wraps its arms around you whole
And its fingers
draw within you
to freeze your bitter soul
You shudder
deep within you
Pray for warmth to come again
But you know
the prayers desired
Are prayers
you speak in vain
And you don your non-emotion
wrap it round your body tight
Futile attempts you muster
'Tis futility
you fight
~
Now you know
that you are shallow
cannot give the love they need
And you know now
deep within you
You are winters' heart indeed
~~~

Her poem was very well done Rex ... I can see why you were inspired to begin writing as you noted in your "early poem challenge" post.

Best wishes,

she writes beautifully Rex.  Is she just
an ex or is she dead  LOL am a firm believer
in being friends with all my exes -

Gosh mom always did  7 exes at my last count
2 have died  but not before she divorced them

Rex~
My friend it is with a very spiritual soul with which she writes, most talented indeed (not that I'm one to judge talent) but this is beautiful and inspiring  
Love to you Tracie~
P.S thanks for sharing


 Love is the life of the soul...
It is the harmony of the universe
