This is a great idea for a poem .Any observer of nature would note the early warning of an incoming weather. Your poem gives a verbal picture of nature and personification of winter is very effective.

This is a lovely rhyming poem. Here in Minnesota, we don't have to have notification, it starts EARLY. Usually the end of September, or beginning of October. I love the picture and colors you used and the personification of winter. Thanks for sharing.

Shhhh... I'm pretty sure he's colluding with the ladies of Summer and Autumn for some serious 'season crashing' this year... LOL! :) Why not, yeah? It's 2020 -- anything goes!! ;) A great contest offering, my lady, with a unique and wonderful flavor - thanx for sharing and good luck! ;) Yvette

    Thanks, Yvette! You are often my cheerleader. You may be right! They hatched a plot to confuse us by crashing our season. True...it IS 2020, and not much would surprise me! Thanks for the good luck wishes!

Old Man Winter's Secret
by Tina Crute

Hello, Tina,

Great ABC Poetry Contest entry. Good winter imagery and presentation. I thought about the signs of winter coming when I was a little girl playing outside and noticing the clues. Well done.

    Thank you so much for reading and giving me your take on it. I wonder if Old Man Winter will be on time and behave, or make a mess of things. I feel like we all need a break from crises. I appreciate your review. As a kid, we couldn't wait for snow!

Winter does like to tease. We will get a cold spell and then suddenly Indian Summer will float by fir a couple of day's. Then suddenly we'll wake up to find snowflakes on the branches. Lovely piece.

The message has been perfectly conveyed and felt somehow. We only have 2 seasons, sunny & rainy. The author was able to make me appreciate the feeling somehow... and signs that the winter is coming. Wish you all the best and good luck!

I found the wintry imagery of this enticing. Wonderful visuals and a charming artistic presentation.

This should do very well in the contest, good luck in the booths.

Very nice and prettily-written poem! I like the kaleidoscopic image. The flow was smoothe and natural- I wouldn't have known it was an ABC poem.

    Wow,thanks! I often notice poems on here, that when I read them, I dont notice the rhyme at first. Thanks for that compliment!
