It was nine degrees out all was frozen
Not much better inside for commode water
Icy crystals formed not what we'd chosen 
Shaking at fireplace's front, stood our daughter
On top of the hearth wasn't any better
One thing we didn't need was a fly swatter

Outside with slick cardboard and snow saucer
The children did laugh and gingerly play
With warm cocoa sipped, slept like a dosser
Snuggled upon dry straw and cow's loose hay
They could have slept through loudest donkey's bray
That experience made for a good day

Winter wonderlands don't happen much here
Usually cold, wet, and windy each year
Sometimes with ice spewed then bugs disappear
So that winter wonderland brought us cheer
Lots of wet clothes and needed headgear
Once we relaxed and to rules didn't adhere

Each family needs one winter wonderland
With cocoa and popcorn in dixieland

Stuart, Is that good or bad not to have snow in Liverpool? Thanks for dropping by. I appreciate the kind review. We haven't had snow here just two or three or four heavy frost. Sara
