The peaceful winter night

by Leo D. age 11

The leaves fell into the first piercing winds of winter, the birds sang as they flew south while the children sipped on hot cocoa as they settled in for bed as night approached the first snow fell. And the sky turned from orange to gray all was peaceful and calm as the parents kissed their kids goodnight as the stars shine bright and the trees stand bare their branches outstretched as the wind whispers in their ears while the snowflakes dance and twirl and disappear while the moon peaks behind the mountains .The street lights flickered as the wild dogs wandered searching for food and the worries of the children disappear as they drift off to dreams in hopes their wishes come true. It is truly a peaceful winter night
