A Midwinter Night's Dream

Welcome to The Spot Writers.
This month’s prompt is to write a story including the words, “Will winter never end.”
This week’s story comes from Chiara De Giorgi. Chiara dreams, reads, edits texts, translates, and occasionally writes in two languages. She also has a lot of fun.


A midwinter night’s dream
by Chiara De Giorgi

Through the forest I did go
Tallest trees covered in snow
All was silent, all was white
Soft and crunchy, left and right.
Up above the sky was blue
And the sparkly stars in view

Promised love, and magic, too.

Love and magic? Don’t believe
All your heart wants to perceive!
Winter stars are left alone,
All the fairies are long gone
And the woods will just pretend
That white ice is good a friend.

Oh, will winter never end?

Don’t despair, this frosted season
Has a secret, cheerful reason:
Life beneath this blanket pearly
Hides and shies from all that’s earthly
Until spring returns anew.
This can I reveal to you:

Fairies dance on snowflakes, too.

My dear friend, you give me hope!
I’ll see flowers on this slope
Thousand colors, buzzing bees
The green magic of the trees
Sweetest nights, warm air, and moon
Dancing fairies, charming tune

Spring will be back very soon!
