    The fertile fallow furrow
    fleeting under flurries of fressly
    fallen snow.'..............Lovely alliteration not merely alliteration but thought as well.

    The poem as a whole is marvelous. Great poetic job (Report) Reply

    I wish you are not so pessimistic to think the meaning of life is meaningless.I for one feel that we are here born for the continuation of our progeny and to do our best to help others in misery.But as a poem the write is enchanting! (Report) Reply

    Goose bumps! How sadly true, yes indeed the meaning of life is meaningless. Great poem, thank you for share! (Report) Reply

    The lines hold out well the theme of the poem and more vividly, in the huskless stalks shivering in the wind.The last lines convey utter emptiness in lack of purpose. (Report) Reply

    This poem is wonderful. So very simple, but yet the content is profound and provocative of those much deeper questions of humanity, especially pertaining to today. I thoroughly enjoy this poem, Midnight. (Report) Reply
