House in the Snow

House in the Snow
by Nathaniel U. (6th grade)

The house
is warm
and inviting
the fireplace
alit and wafting
the bittersweet smell
of smoke
into my nose
the snow
a white blanket
draped over the mountains
and houses
is cold
yet makes you
feel warm inside
the ski rack
is frosted over
with flakes
the moon
illuminated the woods
casting shadows
onto the porch
I am in bed
ready to go there
the next day.
