ArtSpeak: FOUR SEASONS poem "Saying Goodbye to Winter


Hello and welcome to the latest installment of ArtSpeak: FOUR SEASONS! (Posting early because I have a special guest coming to the blog tomorrow!) 

A special welcome to  Mrs. Hahn and students!!! Did you write "Sleigh Ride" poems? I hope so!!

Today I'm excited to share with you my last winter poem of this series... until winter returns in December. :) 

Next week I'll be back with my first Spring poem of the season! And so...

Saying Goodbye to Winter

As sleigh crests
one last hill

eager sun
goldens the snow,

We grin

into the wind
as bells sing

and horses keep
the season's

one true rhythm:
let go  let go  let go

- Irene Latham


  1. I love what the season's one true rhythm is -- so good!

  2. Yes! Winter teaches us over and over again to let go. Love it!

    I wrote to your challenge, and I'm waiting for permission to share the poem of the one student who took the challenge. Just one, but she knocked it out of the ballpark!

    1. I commented too soon! J.L.'s poem is there!

    2. Where can I see the poems?? Your blog?? I have school visits this morning, but can't wait to read it!! xo

  3. Such soothing rhythm. I love, "We grin." How lucky that you got to spend time with Mrs. Hahn and her students. I would love to be a learner in her classroom. She makes learning far more than school. What a lucky writer you are! Thanks for a season of wonderful poems. I continue to be inspired by your inspirations.
