When a cold winter nigth starts you know when it is going to happen. the breeze cools the sky darkens early, The stars start to glow. When you go to bed you know the cold is there wating to snatch you up out of the warmth of your cozy bed when you wake in the morning you are still warm but alas you must get up you are stiff and cold again you look out the window where the cold attacked the only proof the cold was there was a gray silent fog.you look more thoroughly and find that your pumpkin has frosted over along with the rest of the out side world. you are only seven so you fell sorry for you pumpkin so you bring it in side and put it on a towel to thaw when it is do you put it back out side to face the sun rise with warmth in its seeds and love in its stem.
