Here is my entry:
TOO COLD! (WC 50) By Michelle S. Kennedy
I lace my skates
made just for ice.
Forgot my gloves—
and pay the price…
My fingers freeze!
Can’t feel my toes!
And now I have
a runny nose…
My lips are chapped.
It’s hard to blink.
It’s just TOO COLD!
FORGET the rink—
(I’d rather have a cocoa drink!)
