Poem: Winter Blues

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Winter blues is a poem about dreading winter before it actually arrives. Wishing for springtime to be here instead. Her bones ache in pain with each temperature drop. Her mood becomes disgruntled. She yearns for Spring.

Cold bitter wind
blowing upon my face
the sky grey and dim,
not ready for this winter
to set in.

My bones ache in pain
with each temperature drop,
my mood becomes disgruntled
counting the days for Spring
before winter has shown her ugly face.

How I long for days of sunshine
where birds gently chirp,
a warm, gentle breeze
with a scent of flowers adorning my senses
waking me from my peaceful slumber.

Peggy,

Thank you.

I come to actually despise Winter when I first feel that first chill in the air.

Don't get me wrong...I love watching it snow.

If only I could just watch it...it's beautiful.

Something peaceful about fresh fallen snow.

You are right about Autumn.

Take care and have a great night.

I remember the bone-chilling long days of winter when we lived in Wisconsin. We always looked forward to spring. I never dreaded winter before it arrived, because we had the beautiful fall leaves, and those first pristine snowfalls to enjoy.

Yes, Loyal, I feel like many of us feel this way when Winter is upon us.

Thanks for reading.
