The Sledding Expedition MAG
The red metal blades of the sled
Cut through the snow like knives
As I glide at a furious pace down the slope.
I struggle with the primitive steering mechanism
Hoping to avoid the various rocks, trees,
And other sledders decorating the hill.
The snow and ice fly down my jacket
And into my gloves and hat
Until I am soaking wet and half frozen.
I climb the hill and slide effortlessly back
Many times, and after each run,
I tell my fellow sledders of my downhill adventures.
Then after we have had our fun,
Or if someone has been seriously injured
We walk home, cold and hungry
Hoping there is hot chocolate waiting.
