My Poem- I think you will enjoy this very much
The bitter winds, bitterly biting at my boots
the summer sun sizzling my soft drink
the spring sunlight, sighing in awe of the separation
and the wonderful winter winds weighing their worries
eat me mind, o seasons
eat me whole

Well, since no one has commented on this poem before, Imight as well start it off. I think that the imagery is absolutely fantastic. Moreover, this captivating flow of thoughts, exhibits the speaker's realization of his own mortality.
