Poem Spark Dec. 24 - Jan. 7 - Winter Poems
Greetings fellow poets!
As you may have guessed, the passing of winter and the start of a new year are on my mind. And it seems that I'm not the only one thinking of this; the front page of Poets.org has the following banner:
Poems for Christmas
Poems for Winter
Poems for New Years
If you click on any of those links, it brings you to a plethora of choices. I can't pick all my favorites; there are so many holiday poems from which to choose. Robert Frost or Wallace Stevens? Tennyson or Hardy? The possibilities are endless.
For this spark, you have a choice: pick your favorite winter/holiday/new years poem and post the title and a link, or write your own poem in celebration (or dismay) of the season.
Have fun and Happy Holidays!
PS-I've decided: my favorite is Wallace Stevens' The Snow Man. Brilliant poem!
