Who? What? When? Where? Why? Poems
Start with basics- the order doesn't really matter; just be sure it makes sense:
When? cold day winter
Where? on the river
Why? to prepare for the coming spring
Then add descriptive language to make your poem "delicious."
The tall, silent, gray maple tree
stood frozen, like a sleeping volcano
on a sunny, bitterly cold day in winter
on the bank of the rushing, boisterous river
to prepare itself for the coming labor of spring
when it will erupt into a glorious, crimson fire
