Poem: Time to Freeze!
by Wes K, Grade 7, St. Anne's Elementary School, Peterborough, ON


Winter is the time to freeze;
when all objects outdoors
become paralyzed in the cold.
Good olí winter!


house

The chipmunks and squirrels
are sleeping soundly
in the trees.
Good olí winter!


fire

Children are playing
in the snow
building sculptures.
Good olí winter!


skating

I sit on the hill
The snow falls soundly
into its soft, white bed
and falls fast asleep
while not a peep
comes from the deep forest.
Good olí winter!


icefishing

The snow sparrows have gone home
to their warm winter nests
while the crackle of a nearby campfire
helps them fall fast asleep
while the foxes creep around
and scavenge for dropped seeds to eat.
Good olí winter!
