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


Winter is a wise gentleman, and me beguiles
Summer, a hot naughty boy, pesky as Peeves
Spring, a fair young maiden, gathering smiles
Autumn, a fine lady, all dressed up in leaves


Each of these lovely people, I so adore
And yet ‘tis that gentleman, all in white, clad
I so desire to stay longer and try to allure
Some may so often symbolize him sad

His demeanor though I find genteel and refined
His trod so soft, amongst snowflakes brought along
His and mine pleasures, pains so aligned
His frosty, wintry touch, I await all year long

October but half-way and you’ll be here, sir
I’ll put on boots to greet you and that coat of fur

I guess I just love winter, and can't wait for it :)

JETTA!!! Oh My I have missed you and your work. I am definitely coming over to your hobbit hole soon and reading loads. You changed your name see thats why I couldn't find you. You have to tell about stuff like changing the name! Oh and now coming to this comment, OH MY YOU really made my day :D :D  It's the one thing I felt like I really lacked in and you say you like my diction. WOW. thanks. And you're SO right. I guess I REALLY wanted to incorporated "Peeves" into it so I just went with leaves instead of being a little more creative. Okay..umm...tell me how would it be if I wrote "...Autumn, a fine lady, that threads of gold weaves.." ??   And I AM SO Glad that you like it. and that it made you like winter. Oh and LOL check out the amount of caps on this comment..hehhehhee I guess you excited me too much. Thank you so much. AND I have missed you a lot over here. And don't disappear again. Love always, Saphira.

I love when sonnets are correctly written... <3 Your diction is AMAZING. That's one thing I want to work on, learning new words. Really, this is really good. I really like the whole personification of the thing. I love reading your work!! The only line I would change myself is the last line of the first stanza. It's a little cliche for my taste and kind of seems like you just stuck it in there 'cause it rhymed. I'm sure you can come up with soemthing else. (: WIth that aside, I really like this poem. Nice job.
