Chosen Words

Friday, December 27, 2019 by The Press in Opinion

The Snowman

As far back as I remember,

the snowman’s been around, and

after every snowfall,

they’re all around the town.

Why must it be a snowman? Why not a car or house?

Why not a little snow child, or even a snow mouse?

We all have heard of snow forts;

we make snow balls, too.

So why not something quite unique,

perhaps a dog or two?

The next time snowfall hits the ground,

come up with a new plan.

Go out and build a snow “woman”

to go with your snowman!
