pick up a christmas ornament and uncover a story a hook into the past entering the present where faces and words replay and years roll back and i remember the christmas it began to snow early in the day and kept up through the evening when the shrubs disappeared and snow balls grew large enough to become the start of a snow person who surveyed the landscape and knew that they all had a few days of life before melting and until then they'd watch the sledders careen down through two backyards attempting to break speed records on flexible flyers, saucers, snow tubes, and several cafeteria trays that caught the smooth areas to pick up speed and fly into the record books for the ainsley road sledding trophy which was a plastic toy sled spray painted gold with the word champion in red glitter
