Winter

 

By Adele Bilney

 

Naked trees and woolly coats,

All tucked up by the fire.

Crackle! Pop! It goes.

I snuggle up in a ball

Trying to get warm.

I stare at the fire,

Bewitched.

Dancing flames on glowing logs.

Finally, I fall asleep

Dreaming of my wintry world.

Then a seed in my mind sprouts into a flower

And I realise

Spring will come.
