My Snowman

The snow caresses the air falling down
Big fluffy flakes not making a sound

The days are short and nights are long
This is the beginning of a winter's song

Flakes falling here flakes falling there
There are flakes falling everywhere

Jack frost kissing me on my nose
It's beginning to blush like a rose

I have my mittens, scarf and my hat
Time to make a snowman short and fat

Rolling a big snow ball on the ground
Making this snowman nice and round

I think this snowman is afraid of the sun
His buttons on the front are starting to run

He's now looking upward to the sky 
Oh no my snowman is waving goodbye

Edward J. Ebbs

    It's always a joy to experience snow and build a snowman. The highs and unfortunate low of the last goodbye thanks to the sun.

    I loved this line,"Jack frost kissing me on my nose, It's beginning to blush like a rose" The surprise at the end i is very fitting, "He's now looking upward to the sky Oh no my snowman is waving goodbye", Smile love it. Thanks for sharing your little gems. Agape, Moses
