Winter Solstice

Little Red Riding Hood

illustrated by Rata Mahatta

waiting for the snow

for red berries on white mounds

icicles glistening

Christina Rossetti wrote:

“In the bleak mid-winter

Frosty winds made moan,

Earth stood hard as iron,

Water like a stone

Snow had fallen,

snow on snow,

Snow on snow,

In the bleak mid-winter,

Long ago.”
