SNOW (Winter’s Fall)

The rolling hills, the cedars tall,
Are covered by the winter’s fall.
The limbs so string and yet so long,
Can bear the weight of those who long to rest their head
Upon its bed.

And snow on snow soft lays its blanket down,
A sparkling and glorious crown,
Sculpted without a sound.

So fine, so still, so sleek, so pure,
Through winter’s chill, it will endure.
A scene so bright I squint my eyes,
Beneath this dazzling halo now, enwrapped in white,
A forest lies.

And snow on snow soft lays its blanket down,
A sparkling and glorious crown,
Sculpted without a sound.

Lauren Pageau, Age 11

 

“Lawren Harris’ “Snow” Caught my attention because its focus is in a little clump of trees, which made me feel safe, comfortable and secure. I also like how the snow is so crisp.”

How many emotions can you associate with snow? Snow can evoke many feelings and emotions. Try and make a list of all the ways snow can make you feel.
