People are looking at this wooden world from their homes because the snow is falling in the world. It looks like a snowstorm. The earth is closing. The world is closing and people stop to see the fallen snow on the world. There is nature is not watching the people. It looks like the world is not moving because the lake is frozen. The reason is the world was floating on the lake.

It felt like the darkest and the longest evening of the year. The reason is the morning with the warm sunlight is not coming to malt the snow and the frozen lake to release the world to move. The world is lovely, dark and deep, But the human and humanity have promises to keep, and miles to go before the human sleep, and miles to go before humanity to sleep.
