Book 20 Page 38
It’s winter time
It's cold outside
it’s winter time
and the grass crackles under your feet.
But I’m inside
by the fire side
a putting on another load of peat.
The snow falls down
there’s frost all around,
I can see the children making snow men.
And my god it’s cold
with a wind chill bold,
it hasn’t been this cold since ‘who knows when.’
We have snow on the hills,
out in the winter chill
you can go skiing most of the day.
But I’d rather use my time
with a bottle of mulled wine
than go out in the cold and play.
So I stay inside
by the warm fire side
while the temperature outside’s way below naught.
And so I’m snuggled up warm,
out of the harsh winters storm
a- thinking this cozy little thought.
