Snowman Blues

Paul Curtis


Out of the snowy lawn
The snowman grew
Wearing a hat and scarf
The way that you do

With pebbles for eyes

pressed into the snow
A smiley twig mouth
And a large carrot nose

Hes a magnificent site
The snowman that grew
But hes just snow and ice
And no substitute for you
I wish you were here
To chase the blues away
I wish youd come back
To me for Christmas day
