I got up at the same time I usually do for my morning walk.
But the sun is getting lazy. It stayed in bed. The wind was up, though; blowing a chill in from the southwest.
Only a crow was at the playground. And he was thinking about warmer places.
Yesterday’s rain was there on the swings and slide.
The cold and dark was gradually giving way to morning.
But, wait! What is this? Children turned to stone while at play?
Perhaps they are troll children. Everyone knows trolls will turn to stone if they are struck by the rays of the sun.
