The "we" sounds wrong because there's a shift in the sentence from 3rd person to 1st. How can you rephrase it and get rid of "we"? What would you substitute?

It sounds a bit awkward to me to be honest because it does not sound like the sentence agrees. I would say something more along the lines "the swirling snows gives you mental blissfulness...?" Not sure if that sounds too great for your poem but hope it helps!

The sentence is technically correct. It's not a run on sentence, although as Maximillion stated, it sounds like a run on because of so many phrases. Maximillion has a good solution to making the sentence clearer.

In the second sentence, I'd omit the words in brackets. The rest is fine. In the third sentence, I'd omit the word "colorful." It's not needed. Everything else sounds good.
