The winter came
with singing and dancing
bringing the message of peace
It was a lovely day
cold, but my deep breaths
warmed me and
the snow fell as
I walked to my driving class

The winter wind blew
disheveling my hair
snowflakes kissed my face
my cheeks turned red
my scarf fell from my head
and I wondered why
no one harassed me
for my bare head

Everyone looked so happy
the ground covered by a quilt
as white as the bird of peace
People were cheering
kids were skiing and throwing snow and
I saw smiles on everyone’s face
I wished winter would never end
that the sky would keep on snowing

My heart was beating fast as
I breathed the fresh air
I felt reborn
