A poem about Aspen

Dear Editor:

I love to go skiing,

with other people

the ski lifts-are fun

people are wearing warm clothing

the mountains are steep

Snow storms are coming,

people are waxing skis

people are enjoying the mountain

The hot chocolate is steaming, good

the snow is freezing good

the warm gingerbread is burning, good

the air is sweet

The snow is freezing,

the snowballs are being thrown and they are cold

the happiness is joyful

the warm food is baking

gingerbread is one of them

hot chocolate is the last one

Francis Selldorff
