"Skiing through the Woods"

St. Ann Catholic School
St. Louis County, MO

Click! My ski boot clicks into my ski binding.
I grab my poles and I’m off. I see the snow glisten.
My papa glides ahead. I breathe out the air while pumping my arms.
I hear the wind pick up. Ski tracks lead me into the woods.
Deer trails are next to the ski trails. The cold bites my face.
Skiing is like life––you never know where the trail will lead you,
back at home or lost in the woods.
