"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Little story

I wrote it some time ago, when I was bored. What do you think of it (my use of English, in particular)? I am not sure that is how you change voices in English, by the way. Also, I do not know if this was the right place to post it in the forum.

---------------------------------------

— I love your long blond hair — said Rachel. I was right beside her and we were speaking for some time now. That phrase come out of nowhere and I could not think a good answer.
— Thank you. I like your hair too — she smiled and our eyes met each other. Slowly we get closer, knowing what was about to happen. We kissed. It lasted about a minute or so, and then she looked away. I kept staring at her, she was looking at the stars, her eyes shining and she lightly rose her barren shoulder. I liked her shoulders too.
— Do you know them? The stars, I mean.
— Some of them — I answered, looking up too.
— Show me.
— Hum. There is Canopus and there, below the southern cross is Rigil Centaurus, it's the nearest star to the sun, do you knew?
— Hum. And you think there are some life in there?
— Well, not there necessarily, but I think there must be in some of them at least.
— Would you like go to there and check it for yourself?
— Sure. Do you have your spaceship with you?
She smiled.
— It's down there, hidden in those bushes. Actually, those bushes are just a hologram.
And so we went.
