Winter's Dream
The dark wood sleeps,
locked in ice and solitude,

The night wind prays,
breathless and still,

The snowflakes fall
through moonlit mist
and shadowed hall,

I pray thee.
Walk softly here
and wake me not,
for I am winter,

Dear Elaine,
For me there is a serene feeling about this piece. Yet on several readings I find it harsh too, and believe that perhaps the word "silence" is for me the reason. Perhaps I've watched too much TV, but "silence" ! sounds like an threatening order rather than a means of showing the quietude and solemnity of the night.
The dreamy aire about it is captivating.
Nicely done.
Cheers,     jgd
