Schooled

Within these walls, a mother reads
 a book to two young children;
 a whole world being brought to life,
 a heroine, a villain --

And yes, letters and numbers matter;
 but, real elevation
 comes from the schooling of the heart
 that's in imagination

The snow blows cold outside. The lights
 are strung for winter weather;
 there is no camera can show
 the feeling of 'together'

A mother and her two young kids
 in chilly, dull December,
 a story told as time stands still,
 that they'll recall

 forever
