Of snowy bikes and Christmas trees
My daughter and I visited Stockholm during the last weekend
Before school and work started.
The sky was heavy with the promise of more snow.
The pastel buildings looked like cakes
Topped with icing.
(Look at the height of the city’s Christmas tree – 38 metres tall
And decorated with 5,000 lights!)
Fairy tale buildings
Brightened the gloomy sky;
And optimism was not lost
In the knee-deep snow!
(Not sure if that cyclist ever managed to cycle home though!)
