Winter Kiss ( Competition)

entry picture


Snowfalls bring me to madness,

I catch the snowflakes with my lips.

Snow! The fluffy and sparkling snow!

Its falls make beautiful all my trips.


I love the snowfalls very much

Though I am not eighteen!

Even at my age as such

Catching the snowflakes I am a teen.


What ever that I am not eighteen?

What ever that I am not so young?

The apples on the snow can be red or green,

Not all the songs for me were sung.


All the same my heart for love seeks,

All the same I need a sweet kiss.

All the same my soul basks

In the warmest bliss.


Come! It will be the sweetest kiss in the snowfall.

Come! I wouldn’t like it to miss.

Come! I don’t care what people say!

Come! It burns me inside! Please….!


I love you in winters, in springs.

I love you in summers and autumns.

In springs I grow my wings,

In winter I wait for the blossom.


Angel of winter flashed like a ray!

Today the Sun has appeared.

The silvery snowfalls are rolling in,

Bringing happiness in our life stream.


I catch the snowflakes with my lips.

I smile and whisper: You are my darling!

How much I love this winter wonderland!

And I wait for the song of a starling.

Oh, dear Cynthia! You are so right! I also feel sorry for those who didn't dance under the rain, who didn't feel the kiss of the falling snow, who didn't feel and experienced that exhilaration.

That rush of deep sensuous pleasure in the falling of snow pulses through your poem. One can only feel sorry for those who have never experienced such exhilaration. And age makes no difference.
