Commentary...
Poem #1
I enjoy poems about snow in Winter because I rarely see the stuff and I work so much I sometimes forget what season it is.

When I was learned how to write scientific articles I was taught that, while jargon can express complicated ideas concisely, it should be avoided whenever possible because, as applied, it often obscures simple ideas. In other words, people not necessarily familiar with concepts like dipoles, hydrogen bonding, or vectors will necessarily miss the some of the author's message.

On the other hand, I got the drift.

Poem #2
I have no comment about Barry's poem except to say that I am shocked that although he lives minutes from me, his Winter weather is completely different. And Barry, if you dig 8" under "virgin" snow and find a spent condom, can you be sure that the snow is still virginal? I need to know!

Poem #3
Excellent poem. Like snow, it left no after-taste for a hack like me to latch onto and criticize. But can you be that clever with a name like Gracielda?
