Changing Seasons

Posted October 31, 2013 & filed under Notebook.

In spring,
I will color the world light blue.
The sun will rise up.
The birds will sing a song
And people will dance all day long.
Dogs will bark
And the day will pass in front of me.

In winter,
I will color the world white.
Snow will fall.
We will jump up and down,
Up and down.
The snow is bigger than we
Will ever be.
Snowflakes everywhere.
So we make snowballs.

Outside in Winter

Posted January 18, 2013 & filed under Notebook.

I am outside looking at the snow falling, and I hear the wind blowing the trees.
I am outside smelling the hot chocolate and hearing the birds.
I am walking and looking at the animals outside.
Children are playing and people are saving the plants.
I am looking at my family playing.

laughs at the trees

where ice hangs

from houses

and loud hammers

bang on the night

mountains from

My Tree, Snowy

Posted December 3, 2009 & filed under Notebook.

Dear Snowy,

You are a big tree. You carry a lot of nature and hold baby birds. You look like a big giraffe because you have a long and tall trunk. I’m tall, too. Your leaves look like hair and your branches look like my arms. When I touch you, you feel a little rough.

Your colors are pink, yellow, and white. I like your name, “snow” with a “y” at the end. I name you that because you remind me of winter, and in the winter your leaves fall down, and they look like falling snow. In the spring when you come back, you will be the same, won’t you, Snowy?
