Not exactly ground breaking to put emotion to a season, but you've done it well. Subtle description and small annoyances turn the poem from a complaint about the weather to an expression of emotion.
Sans the common theme of equating winter to death, it does make the reader get a hopeless feeling toward the end.
I used to live in a very wintery climate and I know how it feels to think that it will just never be warm again. I moved away, though. haha

I like how you wrote this a bit like a cycle, and that winter is a season in a cycle. :) Works well!
snowflakes away," - my favourite line. :)

i always read your stuff; don't always have
any useful thing to say. this is one of my
faves of yours in quite a long time. love
the breaking cold & bones in line 1, and all
those wondrous present participles; always
wondrous in poems. not entirely sanguine
about "glaring," although "gleaming" doesn't
cut it, either. how about "clamant?" also,
ankles don't seem to steep well; mayhap
"sopped in slush-soused denim, send". . . .
anyway. . . .very good.

I love the way in which the first stanza directly connects to the line: "Winter, and I'm feeling like it too." That was pretty crafty of you. :)

Gotta love winter :p
I loved the lines "... Sometimes bright/ in the glaring white of fallen snow,/ often misunderstood." The bright/white rhyme gave those lines a really fun to read rhythm. Nice poem. Keep up the writing!
