Black, White, Grey
Not as bad
As they say

Much worse
To be truthful
A simple curse

Way too cold
All alone
Nothing to hold

Better in May
Fading in memories
Long stored away

Angels on Earth
Made and wiped away
Having no worth

Grey, White, Black
Suns great beauty
Much in lack

Life all gone
None to see
All moved on

Reigning moon
Sun now gone
Far too soon

Fire always burning
Constant warmth
Be all we’re yearning

Clouds left unseen
Their beauty unknown
Far too mean

Grey, Black, White
All foreseen beauty
Way out of sight

Prints shortly there
Swiftly blown away
Barely unfair

Sinking to your knee
The price of here
Such life can’t be free

Death in the air
Trees, flowers, leaves
Much unfair

Slowly fading from sight
The seemingly endless effects
Of Grey, Black, White

This piece represents the dreary cold chilling snow, and lack of beauty that winter holds. How stifling it is.

You did a good job here of having even stanzas, and the rhyming and rhythm was good! I like the idea of this poem; this is often how I view winter, as well! I have a suggestion that you maybe combine some stanzas to make it shorter, but again, that's just my idea. :\ But it's a good poem!! Keep up the good work.
