Stephen Malysh Allegretto (T. Kirchner)
I walked through the grass on this cold winter day. A thin layer of snow on the ground crunched as I stepped onto its smooth white surface. A fewfeet away from me, a dog was rolling around in the snow. We live near Seattle, so it was very rare for us to have snowy winter. I started to walk home so I could finish my leftovers from breakfast, when I slipped on the sidewalk and fellface first into the snowy grass. I laughed at myself for making such a silly mistake. My cloths were wet and soggy now and I hurried home to get something dry to put on. It was quite uncomfortable, walking home drenched from foot to toe in icy water. I finally reached my front door, and I walked inside and shut the door behind me.
Ellie Hanson Christmas Time is Here (V. Guaraldi)
Michael Malysh Fluttering Leaves (S. Heller)
Spin and whirl, flow and prance,The leaves begin their autumn dance.Through mud and rain and biting cold,They shimmer brown, red and gold,They fly, abandoning their trees,To serve to Lady Fall's appease.Over the mountains, valleys through,The leaves fly far, their pathways true.On and on without relentHail the heralds of Fall's ascent.
Audrey Lin The Old Castle ( from "Pictures from an Exhibition" by M. Mussorgsky)
The castle is more ancient than any bone left in the soil.
