A Secret Promise Kept

A Secret Promise Kept

Tucking It in –

A Rhyming Toss on Season’s Loss


The garden, now resigned to frost,

Adapts a dormancy, though tossed.

Spent blooms admit their youth has wrapped,

And stems to coming chill’s adapt.


The climate pirates colors all

To fell all flair for frosty fall.

A vandal violent is he

To conquer beauty heartlessly.


Yet hidden in a secret space,

The promise, silent, sets a pace.

Perhaps a season soon indeed

May one day winter supercede.

  5. I love your poem! Each line reached out and grabbed me...A vandal violent is he
    To conquer beauty heartlessly.
    Very clever!

    Thank you,
