Ode to Winter (A Poem by Emma Lyon)

045

I came across this poem, as I sit and look out the window at winter’s chilly breath. I thought it went well with the sentiments I expressed in yesterday’s post. I hope you enjoy it! The poet is Emma Lyon and the source is listed beneath the poem.

Ode to Winter

When Winter’s silver mantle spreads the ground,

And robes fair nature in her vestment pale,

My wand’ring eyes gaze o’er the chilling round,

As sad I listen to the plaintive wail

Of airy songsters, while aloft they soar,

And with fleet wings etherial tracks explore. Read the rest of this entry »

You were caught in an avalanche. To be rescued, you need to make it through the night. What thought(s) would give you the strength to go through such a scary, dangerous situation?

Soft powder,

Like bits of cloud

swirl in my turbulent air. Read the rest of this entry »

We all get jealous from time to time — what wakes the green-eyed monster for you?

Mine! Mine! the selfish mantra of a child,

Such jealous frenzy drives them madly wild.

Out Past the Back Glass (A Poem)

Look out your back window or door — describe what you see, as if you were trying to convey the scene to someone from another country or planet.

What do I see when I look out my back door?

But a world exploding to life and falling in death.

A world of colors−vibrant and electric,

Blooming and stirring; reaching for heaven’s breath.

A Student’s Confession (A Poem)

Math! Math! No please, I’d rather take a bath!

Numbers and signs are hard on my mind.

Integers and equations cause me such frustration.

Positive or negative it makes my mood volative.

Less than or equal it is torturously medieval!

Math! No, please no, can’t I instead take a bath?
