(A Simile Poem)

Winter - A Simile Poem

As harsh as the cold winds that whimper and moan.

As cold as the ice which turns water to stone.

    As sad as the clouds which turn blue into grey

    And as sad as the fact we have shortening days.


As crackling as flames that keep out the chill;

As loud as the winds, both strident and shrill;

    As sad as we feel when warm sun says goodbye

    And as white as the snowflakes that dance through the sky.


As glad as we feel to see spring come again,

With its freshness, its sunshine and light gentle rain.

     We’re pleased to leave winter and welcome the spring

     With its cheerfulness, warmth and the pleasure it brings.
