I think this is a good entry for the Minute contest.
Your wintery verse is well rhymed and reads smoothly.
Well done and good luck to you with the contest.

This is a very good entry for the minute poetry contest. Your syllable count and lines are correct. This is very pleasant to read, and you've chosen the perfect artwork to go with your words. I would like to make one suggestion: it seems like there is an extra quote in the fourth stanza, so I would remove one. Good job and thank you for sharing.

I really love the atmosphere of your minute poem, Marilyn. The warmth juxtaposed the coolness of snow is always to me a soothing feeling.

Excellent rhymes and adhering to the contest guidelines completely.

I wish you great luck with the Contest Committee. :)

MLB's "A Winter Welcome" is the very definition of that difficult-to-translate German word: "Getmutlichkeit." Her words appeal to both the visual and auditory imaginations, and make us all grateful for shelter from the storm. This word-picture is well-painted.

Despite the pains of snow removal and shoveling, winter is a lovely time of year. The blanket of snow glistening in the sun after the storm can be so comforting. Thanks for putting a positive spin on winter!

A very well-written minute poem to welcome winter snow and cold temperatures allow us to stay cosy indoors in front of the fore place and something hot to drink and eat

This work has reached the exceptional level
This poem has been perfectly modelled to the minute contest entry due to its three well counted syllables (8/4/4/4) stanzaic versification and also to its beautiful warm atmosphere of its cosy delicate narrative storylined content. Great work. Blessing from Italy

    I just saw 6 stars! I am honored. Tante grazie. Parte di la mia famiglia e Italiano (Plastino e Scarpelli). Di Calabria.

    Welcome dear new friend of mine! It's time to learn Italian which is a great cultural language. I come from Salerno (Southern Italy). Go to my collection of Italian English poems on the site called ALcheringa and try to read one. Blessings Tony

Your description of winter scenes is vivid and appealing. I gave a 3 because the poem lacks the rhyme scheme required for the minute poem. I hope there's time to make the changes.

This rating does not count towards story rating or author rank.
The highest and the lowest rating are not included in calculations.

This is a delightful minute poem. Each stanza is self-contained, but together they create a story from the scene each depicts {thumbs up}.

Here's wishing you the best of luck when the contest is judged {smiles}.
