Declaration Of War Against Winter - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

The old man is a gallant fighter,
Still there's fuel in his years old lighter,
He is no less greater than the great Alexander,
His army is lead by vigorous thunder,
He can melt icy rivers and frozen lakes,
He has an Allie who helps and shakes,
Who helps the fighter with covering fires,
And old man advances to fulfill his desires,
So he has declared a war, against the winter,
And with a love poem still runs the splinter.

    The idea of arresting winter chill with a poem is promising! That is what we do in the winter of our life..... Even woolen outfits cannot grant that much warmth! Enjoyed the poem! (Report) Reply
