Winter

by Ashlee Reynolds

The weather is cold, dreary as the bleak, grey skies spill heavy snow. People complain as kids wish for a snow day; they all groan as parents make their way to work, and their kids get ready for school. Everyone who loves winter is cheery and complacent; others hoping and wishing it would go away as they go through the day gloomily. The snow gets heavier; the roads gradually get slicker. All the kids cheer when schools close early; parents pick up their kids while the gripe and groan, because they had to leave work early. When they get home, the children run and laugh and play; they think of how great snow days are.
