To honor the first snowfall
And all the ones that will come after
We put on our coats, gloves, earmuffs, and hats
To play in the snow, have snowball fights,
Make snow angels, and if there is enough of it
Then make a snowman
Before getting out the shovel
And cleaning up the sky’s mess.
We end the day freezing cold and soaking wet
Perfect conditions for a cup of hot chocolate.
