Winter Wonderland?
By: Sophia Navarro-Montes

The beauty of winter
The moon wakes early
And goes to bed late
And snow and cold and ice
But is it?
A season keeping warmth
In hiding
A season keeping sun
In hiding
A season keeping life
In hiding.
As bleak as it is beautiful
Like a sweet poison.
Yet uncontrollable
Yet inconsolable
Two sides of a coin
A blessing and a curse
As all flock
from the beast of cold.
The truth is hidden
By a big man in red
And the word “Holiday.”
Children press their noses
Against cold glass
To see beautiful cursed stars
Descend from the sky
In the storm of winter.
The truth is hidden
Just like the warmth
A Winter Wonderland
But is it?
