    -------------------------------------------


    Harsh winter’s wind blew icy chill
    Across the meadow, o’er the hill;
    But, warm beneath my fleecy sheet,
    I fell asleep despite the sleet.

    As frozen drops hit windowpanes,
    A-tap, tap, tapping came the rains
    In ever-growing fits of noise
    That no amount of will destroys.

    A nightmare threat’ning to progress
    Kept slowly building fearful stress;
    Each sound, more menacing in tone,
    Drove growing fear of things unknown.

    No logic met my fitful sleep
    For terror’d crept inside too deep.
    Attempting yet to seek escape,
    I scratched and clawed and screamed and scraped.

    Beyond the point of no return
    Where light of day must surely burn,
    May’s spring awaits the daffodils
    And I shall win this war of wills.

      I'm impressed. I adore the meter; the poem begs for me to read it outloud.

    Overall, great consistency throughout the poem. Almost every word seemed to be made for the word that came before it.

    The only part I'm not sure about is "fleecy sheet"... it was the only instance that I felt a little out of place reading.

    It was definately refreshing to read.

      This is a remarkable description of a developing nightmare promted by a winter storm! It's a delightful poem, with excellent structure and rhyme. I found the first stanza spectacular:

    "Harsh winter’s wind blew icy chill
    Across the meadow, o’er the hill;
    But, warm beneath my fleecy sheet,
    I fell asleep despite the sleet."

    Wonderful!

      This was one of those stormy nights, you falling asleep, cold under your sheet.
    It started to hail, (fits) hail coming in sections and it’s getting louder and louder. You want the storm to go away because you are afraid.
    All logic disappeared as the nightmare took over, you started to kick and to scream.
    You begin to feel save again as the night disappears onto morning. You woke from your sleep, your will took over, you win.

    I hate it when I’m dreaming; I know I’m dreaming, but unable to wake myself.
    The only thing I didn’t like was the word “o’er” you probably want to make it sound like a one syllable word to keep the meter, but still sounds like two. The missing consonant makes it sound very long. Do I make sense?

    Other than that, nice poem Sharon
