Spontaneous Poetry

The day's activities started with cozy chats under the covers of my bed. We watched the Mockingbird that sits on the same branch of the Holly tree just outside my bedroom window. James and Quentin began making up winter poems spontaneously. James began with
In the Winter
the sky is white.
In the winter
it is snowing.
At this point Quentin interjected and said that he could write a winter poem, too.
Play outside
in the wintertime.
Hot cocoa
in the wintertime.
We go around the fire
in the wintertime.
James said that he liked that and wanted to add that to his poem, so he wrote;
In the winter
we play outside.
In the winter
we warm up with hot cocoa.
In the winter
we go and get cold again.

Not to be outdone (since James' poem was longer), Quentin illustrated his...

(The flower-like things in the sky are snowflakes.)

Play outside in the wintertime.

Hot cocoa in the wintertime.
We go around the fire
In the wintertime.
