E.M.

454 18 40

Soft. Light. Cold and early

As white as white could be

His window of imagination

What did Elijah see

...

The endless freshly snowfall

It seemed like wonderland

Prefect for a snowman

Built by his own hands

...

Coldest day of winter

He did not understand

His boots, diaper and t-shirt

No match for what was at hand

...

He left his safe apartment

He left way after 3:00

He left for some adventures

As curious as could be

...

He walked out into winter

No one was there to see

He did not know the danger

Elijah was only three
