I’m A Little Snowman
I’m a little snowman short and fat,
Here is my scarf and here is my hat.
When I see the snow fall,
Here me shout
“All you children please come out!”
Like most months, I am doing the same thing I always do, set 5 goals for myself to accomplish each month. Here are my five for this month and they are all Holiday related.
- Catch up on all my favourite Christmas carols.
- Have a holiday movie marathon with the Princess.
- Bake and eat my fair share of holiday treats.
- Take a nice and long winter stroll.
- Rediscover the true meaning of Christmas.
The door was shut, as doors should be,
Before you went to bed last night;
Yet Jack Frost has got in, you see,
And left your window silver white.
He must have waited till you slept;
And not a single word he spoke,
But pencilled o’er the panes and crept
Away again before you woke.
And now you cannot see the hills
Nor fields that stretch beyond the lane;
But there are fairer things than these
His fingers traced on every pane.
Rocks and castles towering high;
Hills and dales, and streams and fields;
And knights in armor riding by,
With nodding plumes and shining shields.
And here are little boats, and there
Big ships with sails spread to the breeze;
And yonder, palm trees waving fair
On islands set in silver seas,
And butterflies with gauzy wings;
And herds of cows and flocks of sheep;
And fruit and flowers and all the things
You see when you are sound asleep.
For, creeping softly underneath
The door when all the lights are out,
Jack Frost takes every breath you breathe,
And knows the things you think about.
He paints them on the window-pane
In fairy lines with frozen steam;
And when you wake you see again
The lovely things you saw in dream.

LET IT SNOW TOMORROW
Let it snow tomorrow,
I hope it’s very deep.
Just let it snow and snow and snow,
When I am fast asleep.
Every place has a brand-new-face,
That’s all dressed up in white.
Then I’ll climb the mountainside,
And with my sledge have a million rides!
So let it snow on Monday, Tuesday,
On Friday let it snow and don’t miss
Saturday and Sunday.
My secret wish is simply this,
Just let it snow tomorrow.
Let is snow tomorrow
Let it snow tomorrow just for me!
WHETHER THE WEATHER
Whether the weather be fine,
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot,
We’ll weather the weather
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not!
