For contest:  Bring to Life

AWARDED:  3rd PLACE 

It was a cold winter day on the Fundy Bay when the wind and the Ocean Raged

You were a child with the sweetest smile who walked through a storm for a mile

Over the frozen sand as I held your hand, we made our way to the land

Up over the banks past the shipyard tanks and a pile of old wooden planks

Homeward bound as the snow fell down and wood shavings blew all around

I held your hand like a grown man the way that your Mother planned

Keeping you warm from the day I was born together we weathered the storm

I was made by a hand, with wool from a lamb, with love knitted in every strand

As soft as a kitten and Oh! So smitten,  I...Just one of pair of mittens.
