Old Man

Around the Corner Contest (WINTER is around the corner) By Sally Wood Old Man There's an old man I heard is new in town They say he's not shy as he takes over the land His business is snow and ice and cold rain The neighbors are talking he's all the rage He changed the scenery his very first day While the trees lost their leaves and died away He has a blower for harsh cold winds and rain And later he'll order people to dress his way This old man has taken over our town People are running in attempts to escape his plans They wear heavy clothing, boots, and hats on their heads As they pass him, he laughs, he has nothing to dread Yes, there is a new old man in town Who has people angry and avoiding his frown He'll keep on moving a few months down the line But for now, our town won't be free for quite some time!
