Thy sack of stars lay scattered on the moors,
The brittle boughs and freckles on the frost;
She comes, from grit, from breeze, from everything,
Barefoot, leaping onto the Popsicle;
A cheeky blast wraps her from head to toe,
Those splintered souls converge---ebb, flow.
Oh, shivers on a bud, a freezing dew------
She wonders how such flickered waltz die out.
From clouds above to earth below, she flows,
Tapping about, collides with rigid wool.
A heavy revving echoes with rippling snow,
which splits the air, but pads with saccharine rose;
Tumble o’er rush, How grand! These whirling souls
A thicker colour falls, more steps, she fades?

Thx for your reply! In Chinese poems, we oft use a long dash(——), but I didn't know how to tyoe it in English keyboard so I just used multiple hyphens. Thanks for your suggestion! Also, I was trying to convey the sound of a snowplow about the "heavy revving". I will try to to clarify a bit more about that:) Frankly speaking, English is my second language, so I feel really lucky to have someone comment on my immature work, thx!!
