The snowflakes fell
As the wind roared,
The church bell rang
Around the Moor.
The hills were white,
The sheep were in
And the old Man slept
With his bottle of Gin.
Knight Dragon, here to bestow the 65th and final Review Day review from this Knight!Technical:"As the wind roared,", this should have a period instead of a comma, or a semi-colon. But I think it flows better with a period.Otherwise this poem really captures what you're going for with the white snow, and the old man implies white hair, which is a call back to the snow. So are the sheep, with their "snow white" coats of fur, although you didn't call them that. Very good job.Hope this helps! Happy Review Day!

Knight Malachi here to review for Review Day, and the Green Room Knights.This poem was short,fast,concise, and hilarious. Your descriptive language and detail made this not only easy to read, but very easy to envision as well. The hills were white, I don't know why, but I LOVE that line. It seems like such a perfect way to convey snow-covered hills. When reading this (at least for this is true) I was expecting it to have some interesting meaning at the end . . . and it did. Just not the type of interesting i was expecting. It totally threw me off in a good way. The ending was so funny. good job.Keep it up!
Hi there Maia! It looks like you joined a while back but haven't posted much yet. Welcome and I hope you're enjoying the site! Nite here from Team Rouge to review. For starters, I really liked your imagery here. It's difficult to make strong images that aren't cliche, so kudos!
