Warning Of Winter

Lillian Broadrick Block 6/8


The frozen droplets of dew,

cover the stiff soil with a thin blanket of ice.

The light reflected of the endless lake of wonder,

is blinded by ruthless and envious sailors

that are eager to steal it away.

It's beginning.

The animals cower and shiver in the merciless cold

as the wind howls throughout the ghastly fields.

Even the tall blades of grass fall captive

To the ruler of darkness and ice.

It's conquering.

A voluminous arctic hand

seizes the world in its loathsome grasp.

It cloaks the world in white

and leaves it to decay.

It's winter.
