Skiing in Colorado

By Kailey


Going up the chairlift, passing all

The pine trees, skiing off onto

The slippery snow.  Attaching the harness

To me.  Daddy skiing, pulling me

Behind him as he goes.  Going

On the bumps, Dad losing his

Ski and chasing after it.

Falling down the mountain

And gliding to the chairlift

For another ride.

Standing, waiting for the chair

To come behind me.  To life me

Up and take me to the top

Of the mountain.  Daddy holding my

Hand as we get off and

Go again.  Gliding, down as if

There is no end of the mountain

Skiing fast, feeling the wind against

Me and noticing the sun setting.

Tomorrow we can go again.
