"Girls are so queer you never know what they mean. They say No when they mean Yes, and drive a man out of his wits for the fun of it." "Violence is never the answer! It is a question, and the answer is yes."


The meadows
They are under attack
Their beauty smothered

The cedars
Their sweeping bows reaching reaching out for a hug
One that they'll never get

The animals
Frozen, slumbering, or dead

It is the truth of winter
The mountains are under attack


The author's comments:
Everybody is like "oh winter is so pretty". Winter has never been pretty to me, all I find is death.

Gil: I would like you to read my novel and get your opinion. 
Ernest Hemingway: I hate it. 
Gil: You haven't even read it yet. 
Ernest Hemingway: If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more. You don't want the opinion of another writer. 

Ooh nice :). You're right, many people just say how pretty winter is, but don't think of the flip side of it. My only suggestion would be to either put a comma after the first "reaching" in the 5th line or just take one of the "reaching"s ours. But otherwise, very nice! :) 5/5
