Cold New York

5th & Sixth Grade Poetry Honorable Mention

An old dirty paper
Shopping bag
Lies damp and
Torn next to a
Street sign.

A small brown
Dog’s paw burns
From the bright blue
Salt scattered on
The icy sidewalk.

A crowd of people
Bundled in hats,
Scarves and coats
Staring
Down at their shoes,
Not noticing the beautiful
Snowflakes drifting through
The sky.
