On a winter day I had a tumble,
it was a wintle, topple and stumble;
on ice I went for a slip,
plunging I did a wild flip;
I lay on the new snow in a jumble !
I heard ice crinkle as I had my spill,
funny it all happened sliding downhill;
on the way down I did sway,
and my feet went quite astray;
I pray now when there is a winter chill !
