What will winter bring?

This poem is written for the100wcgu at Julia's Place with the prompt ...and winter will bring...
What will winter bring?
Spring brought light and warmth on my face
With blossom and daffodils all over the place
Summer delivered heat and days outdoors
Playing on the beach or inside on cool floors
Autumn provided loads of leaves on the ground
With webs and dew and conkers to be found
And winter will bring, well I'm not yet quite sure
But I hope there'll be snow and snowmen galore.





This poem is also submitted at Poetry Jam at http://poetryjaam.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/seasons.html please go and read the other poetic entries.

So many poems this time. I like the light-hearted tone.
Yes, lets hope there'll be lots of snowmen.

I hope you have snowmen galore Emma! Love your blog! :-)

Ah, snowmen galore is definitely one of the positives of winter. Used to love making them. For me winter is always a long season. I enjoyed your poem.

I hope you will also include a link to Poetry Jam where you posted this, in addition to Julia's place, which I am not familiar with.

SNOW! You and my grandson who is an avid skier .... for me? Let it stay on the mountain, please?

Peggy said...

Neat seasons poem here and thanks for responding to my Poetry Jam prompt. Just wondering what a conker is--must be some kind of nut? Or tree see?

Emma Major said...

It's a seed of a sycamore tree encased in spiny shell; they are highly prized by kids in the UK

Emma Major said...

Thanks, I love the more southern climates for visits but would really miss the changing seasons

Emma Major said...

I like just an inch on the ground, not too much but enough to make the world beautiful.

Mary Mansfield said...

Love the playful tone of this...winter is my favorite season, may there be snowmen aplenty this year! Thanks so much for sharing this.

How fun. We moved to the south a few years ago. Living without winter (for the kids) was had. It snowed one year and they were out all day showing the other kids how best to build a snow man and fort as some kids had never done that before!!
