To Winter

O Winter! bar thine adamantine doors:
The north is thine; there hast thou built thy dark
Deep-founded habitation. Shake not thy roofs,
Nor bend thy pillars with thine iron car.'

The narration of winter and it's dread is superb and realistic. Thanks for sharing.
No whimpering or simpering sweet nothings are whispered in his poem, William Blake sees winter as a strong unforgiving adversary. We must acknowledge the brute strength of the seasons- it's not all sparkling sunlike and pansies! - - - - - - - - - - Lo! now the direful monster, whose 1000 skin clings To his strong bones, strides o'er the groaning rocks: He withers all in silence, and in his hand Unclothes the earth, and freezes up frail life.
I like that! it's vary truthfull and it brings me back when I first met winter myself. It's makes me want to have that feeling about winter and just spread out my words to everybody. Good job!
