1. A Snowman

Oh, the beautiful snow!

We’re all in a glow—

Nell, Dolly, and Willie, and Dan;

For the primest of fun,

When all’s said and done,

Is just making a big snow man.

Two stones for his eyes

Look quite owlishly wise,

A hard pinch of snow for his nose;

Then a mouth that’s as big

As the snout of a pig,

And he’ll want an old pipe, I suppose.

Then the snow man is done,

And to-morrow what fun

To make piles of snow cannon all day,

And to pelt him with balls

Till he totters and falls,

And a thaw comes and melts him away.


2. Once there was a snowman

Once there was a snowman,
Who stood outside the door,
He wished that he could come inside,
And run about the floor.
He wished that he could warm himself,
Beside the fire, so red,
He wished that he could climb
Upon the big white bed.

So he called to the North Wind,
“Come and help me, pray,
For I’m completely frozen,
Standing here all day.”
So the North Wind came along,
And blew him in the door,
And now there nothing left,
But a puddle on the floor!


3. A chubby snowman

A chubby little snowman
had a carrot nose.
Along came a bunny,
and what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny,
looking for some lunch,
Grabbed that snowman’s nose,
Nibble, nibble, crunch.
