With winter almost here
it's time to layer on thick
its days are drawing near
so I'll make this real quick.
After the last leaves fell
it was time for a new season
as the wind grew colder, it rang a bell
just as every rhyme has its reason.
Winter fun, winter fanfare
it's all around
winter's joy, winter's wonder
it's easily found.
Frost spread's speedily, like winter's wildfire
people bundled up & burning up, so warm they perspire.
Red faces, red noses, red cheeks, red ears
temperatures so low, it'll bring you to tears.
Winter's dew is especially bright
the sun dancing on it, shines beautiful light
the only kind filled with hope
if you feel down, it'll help you to cope.
With winter closing in, I leave you this note
before you go out, remember a coat
if you start to feel down
forget that frown.
Winter's not vile
put on a smile.
