School’s out for the Holidays – Guest Post by Felicity Sidnell Reid…

Posted on  by Chris The Story Reading Ape

Afternoon darkness cloaks

the road.  The school bus,

late, puffs up the hill.

Its stop signs shoot

out, left and right,

as it stands still.

.

Scarlet paddles open, glow

on pumpkin coach, not

yellow school bus,

as small dark shadows,

fearing nothing, leap

into the piled up snow.

.

Towards a string of diamond lights

each cluster marking someone’s house,

a band of spirits twirl and dance.

They call like birds in their delight

as lit up firs show them the way

and reindeer on a rooftop prance.

.
