A little piece of winter

There’s a forest.
A snowflake falls down.
Then another one, another one and another one.
Everything goes white and silent. It’s  winter.
The shivering trees vibrate into the wind,
the fruits are hidden under the earth and
the sleepy animals warm up in their safe dens.
Outside winter is still there,
waiting for the complete peace and quiet of everything around,
waiting for the helpful transformation of everything.
The hedgehog is very sleepy.
For him it’s time to hibernate.
The hedgehog and his friend, the rabbit,
said goodbye to each other.
They’ll meet again in Spring.
Their friendship, however will not go into hibernation.
This story will accompany child to discover
the magic contents of winter  
and the warmth of a great friendship.
