<>I made a little SNOWMAN;
He had a cheery smile.
I dressed him in a hat and scarf,
then went inside a while.
A STORM came up,
the wind was fierce;
My snowman was so CHILLY!
<>
<>He said he'd love to come inside,
but wouldn't that be SILLY?
I told him he was made of snow,
and though he felt BEFUDDLED,
If I agreed and brought him in,
he'd turn into a PUDDLE!
