"If you don't leap you'lll never know what it's like to fly"

The wind is blowing cooler than before
The sun is beginning to fade today
And hearts of children playing melt away

The Seasons switch from left to right quickly
And saddening days come when snow blows down
A terrible sight to see white blankets
As they do cover the whole troubled town

They snuff and sneer as shovels come to work
They pile snow onto the lawns and scowl
The cars get stuck and people shovel out

The snow came late so children are in school
No playing here; they have to stay and learn
A scream is not in sight; laughter has gone
No marks are left from sleds or boots in town

Alls quiet till’ the time of day has come
The bell will ring and children laugh and run
The fun is finally here for today

i like it. it tells the story of summer ending and its a very peaceful poem. i like the way it rhymes and how every second verse is 3 lines and the ones in the middle of them are four lines. I love the first verse but i think you could probably work on the very last line instead of ''The fun is finally here for today'' perhaps you could change it to something like '' Their fun is finally over for this day'' etc. Great poem though!!

I like the poem, but it doesn't flow as smoothly as i'd like it to. The last sentence I would change to "It is time for their fun". And I'd change the third sentence to, "And hearts of children at play melt away". Other than that I think you have a good poem. Good work!
