Hearing the Seasons
By: Hannah Beasley
Winter sounds of soft touches,
The light crunch when you step through snow,
The thud of a snowball hitting you dead in the center of your back.
Winter sounds like children laughing as they pelt their parents with snow
The soft dripping of icicles as they melt,
The sound of the kettle while warming up hot-coco.
Spring sounds of laughter,
young and old,
of lawn mowers and weed eaters.
Spring sounds of clanking heels and revolving doors,
of ' A day in the sun'.
Spring sounds like family picnics and picking flowers.
Summer sounds of splashing water,
flip flops on hard ground
and giggling children.
Summer sounds of beach horror stories,
Fall sounds of ringing school bells,
Fall sounds of fallen leaves,
and loose change.
