The howling winds, the biting chill
Of wintry nights reign vales and hills
All songs are ceased, trees in tears

    @Shahzia, I'm graetful dear friend for taking time to dilate upon my babbling. I like the way you interpreted it as good critic of poetry. Such comments give life to poetry as compare to mere a few formal words.
    Thanks dear......... :)

    Wait Yasmeen!
    first let me glean some of your adjectives + nouns!

    howling winds, biting chill, wintry nights, autumnal hues, wounded leaves, dreary street, Rayless moon, bleak world,
    Specter shadows, bare boughs, bare earth, palsied blades, Grey sunrise, bright morns, bright spark...

    this is what i always say, a natural poet paints a picture with the tools of grammar, i love Keats for his grammatical word-painting!

    the lines are 14 but with a difference with 3 couplets in the beginning and 1 is the concluding one, as the poem is unlike the octave/sestet or 3 quatrains & a couplet, but you focused on conveying your meaning through imagery, and that is impressive...

    so nice lines:
    Rayless moon peers at the bleak world
    Specter shadows of bare boughs on bare earth
    Stand palsied blades of grass and some roses shrunk
    Grey sunrise, days in blanket of haze cold and stern
    Memories of summer, spring's visions
    For bright morns we all wish and yearn!

    good job! (Report) Reply

    Think most of us are feeling the effects of Winter at this time of year - we need to keep focused on the coming Spring. A great write, and may I wish you a very Happy New Year. (Report) Reply

    Let us hope that the winter won't linger long and verdant spring comes soon! The biting chill and sordidness of winter is powerfully presented! !

    Wish you Yasmeen, a joyous New Year of all possible blessings! ! (Report) Reply
