Snow

By Sophie Torres, age 12
Snow Sophie goes to Briarcliff Middle School, but sometimes lives on Mars. She wants candy and steals lollipops.

“Crystal, white, sugar-light,
how beautiful is the snow?”

 

Crystal, white, sugar-light,

how beautiful is the snow?

Patterns on patterns, they glimmer and shatter.

How beautiful is the snow,

frozen and cold and so very old.

How beautiful is the snow,

silently falling as your mom starts calling,

“come in and get out of the snow.”
