"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."


I see the snow whispering
The secrets that it’s held
Watch the cold caress my face
To show that it means well

I see the sun melt ice cream
The treat cries in despair
And a breeze carries its soft sweet scent
the season without care


I see the leaves re-dress
In their formal gowns
From colors of a lovely red
To deep and hopeless brown

I see the flowers all awake
Rising from their beds
The petals fold out colors
And the trees all shake their heads


The sharp contrast of hot and cold
The way the seasons change
It’s just the earth telling us
Sometimes things re-arrange

This poem won second place in my school poetry contest last year. (I have to say I was disappointed. I had one first place the year before.) But whatever I really like this poem for some reason

Congradulations for winning your school contest, my school does'nt care enough about writing to do anything like that :(. I wish my poem "Rain Stop Studderin'" was as imaginative as this! Keep writing and winning :)

This is Vivaldi's Seasons in lyrics. I have to say I'm somewhat astonished you didn't win your contest.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Hey, this was even nicer than your other peoms...It's got this sweet serene flow and makes on smile..Sure made me smile :) You're reallly talented Hannah!

I see that you are describing more than one season in your poem. You typed the following quote, "I see the sun melts ice cream." I am guessing that this quote describes summer. You also typed the following quote, "I see the snow whispering." I am guessing that this quote describes the season of winter.

I think this poem should have won first place in your school poetry contest! It was quite interesting for me to read!! There were no grammar mistakes that I could see, and I love the pattern you did, with each stanza talking about a different season. I also loved the personifications you added in at the beginning of each stanza, like "the flowers all awake/ Rising from their beds," and, "the leaves re-dress/ In their formal gowns." This is a well-written and well done poem!!

This is really good, I see why it won second place! (I'm jealous, actually). Anyways, I love the way you describe the trees "redressing", and the flowers "rising from their beds, and the trees all shake their heads." Wonderful imagery. This is a really creative and beautiful poem!
