Winter-Time By Robert Louis Stevenson

Winter-Time By Robert Louis Stevenson Late lies the wintry sun a-bed, A frosty, fiery sleepy-head; Blinks but an hour or two; and then, A blood-red orange, sets again. Before the stars have left the skies, At morning in the dark I rise; And shivering in my nakedness, By the cold candle, bathe and dress. Close […]

Woods In Winter By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Woods In Winter By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow When winter winds are piercing chill, And through the hawthorn blows the gale, With solemn feet I tread the hill, That overbrows the lonely vale. O’er the bare upland, and away Through the long reach of desert woods, The embracing sunbeams chastely play, And gladden these deep solitudes. […]

Jazz In Winter By Felicia Chernesky

Jazz In Winter By Felicia Chernesky There is no warming balm like a lush and tawny riff. The soothing halcyon psalm chromatically uplifts and slows the booted rush, lingering as it drifts through freezing city slush and turned-up collar chill and taxi blast, to hush all cold harsh noise until, between each icy blow, with […]

Against Winter By Charles Simic

Against Winter By Charles Simic The truth is dark under your eyelids. What are you going to do about it? The birds are silent; there’s no one to ask. All day long you’ll squint at the gray sky. When the wind blows you’ll shiver like straw. A meek little lamb you grew your wool Till […]

The Winter Lakes By William Wilfred Campbell

The Winter Lakes By William Wilfred Campbell Out in a world of death far to the northward lying, Under the sun and the moon, under the dusk and the day; Under the glimmer of stars and the purple of sunsets dying, Wan and waste and white, stretch the great lakes away. Never a bud of […]

Summer In Winter In Summer By Noah Eli Gordon

Summer In Winter In Summer By Noah Eli Gordon The bottom teeth of summer in winter, braided into whomever stood on the green green bridge watching her shadow lengthen. Sun-pocket. Sunflower. Seedling, you brittle blossoming something the room clears of dailyness. Daily, the bottom teeth of summer in winter, chewing through ropes, raree show rapunzeled, […]

Winter By Grey Eclipse

Winter By Grey Eclipse I don’t necessarily feel empty Nor do I feel numb What i feel is heavy Oh this heart is always on the run Some days I wake up out of breath Other days I manage to take a step Closer to getting over you No, I don’t think it’s possible either […]

How Like A Winter Hath My Absence Been By William Shakespeare

How Like A Winter Hath My Absence Been By William Shakespeare How like a winter hath my absence been From thee, the pleasure of the fleeting year! What freezings have I felt, what dark days seen! What old December’s bareness everywhere! And yet this time removed was summer’s time; The teeming autumn, big with rich […]

Winter Trees By William Carlos Williams

Winter Trees By William Carlos Williams All the complicated details of the attiring and the disattiring are completed! A liquid moon moves gently among the long branches. Thus having prepared their buds against a sure winter the wise trees stand sleeping in the cold. Copyright © by the owner. Discover More Poetry

Winter Trees By Sylvia Plath

Winter Trees By Sylvia Plath The wet dawn inks are doing their blue dissolve.On their blotter of fog the treesSeem a botanical drawing —Memories growing, ring on ring,A series of weddings. Knowing neither abortions nor bitchery,Truer than women,They seed so effortlessly!Tasting the winds, that are footless,Waist-deep in history — Full of wings, otherworldliness.In this, they […]
