Celebrate Winter with Ike D. and Wilson B.

Posted by Staff

During the winter break, the Edwardsville Public Library staff are sharing some poetry animations and a round-robin story.  We hope you enjoy the fun and have a restful holiday season.  We'll be back in the New Year with more book reviews, movie recommendations and lots of other library related items.

What I Love About Winter

Frozen lakes
Hot pabncakes
Lots of snow
Hot cocoa
Skates and skis
Evergreen trees
Funny hats
Sunsets blaze
Snowball fights
Fireplace nights
Chimneys steaming
Winter dreaming

What I Hate About Winter
Frozen toes
Running nose
Sloppy sluch
Holiday crush
15 below
Shoveling snow
Leafless trees
Cough and wheeze
Shorter day
Less time to play
Salt-spreading tractors
Windchill factors
No place to go-
Winter is so
