Zip along the slip and slide
and grab a grip or trip and glide.
Step nicely on the icy path,
you might be safe from skids.
Or stay inside where warm resides,
and keep your hide safe where it's dry.
Advise from wiser eyes?
Let's play outside like we were kids.
Coat and boots and hat on head
we'll throw snowballs, make ramps and sled
And warm up cocoa on the stove
when we're finally chilled.
As the stars fill up the night
the wilderness is calm and bright.
In the snow the fields we know
aren't stifled, they are stilled.
