Favorite Quote:
"Hell is empty, all the Devils are here" ~Shakespeare's the Tempest

The cold air swirls around
So tangible and real.
A white blanket on the ground,
Fresh, clean, and new

The bare trees sway and lean
Under a cloak of white.
And though the birds don’t sing,
Joy rides on the wings of the wind.

Surprising what the white can do
It transforms our world.
It’s quiet like death yet refreshing and new
The whole place has changed before us.

Light so very white
Reflects off the covered ground
Illuminating and bright
And silver like a moon.

And in the dark,
When the stars shine down.
They cast a glow as they hark
The arrival of a winter wonderland

Actually we had to write a lyrical about anything at all, and i was stumped on what to do. I then looked over at my teacher's bulletin board and saw a snowflake cutout left over from her winter board design. I was then all "OHH! i'll write about snow!!!!" yup!
