Senior Thoughts

I'd like to build
a snowman, An' make
'im look so sweet
But all that hard work
Is standing on your feet

And lifting snow balls
upon the other- when a
back is kinda sore
Poor snowman might
be somewhat tilted-
Folks might wonder
What he's looking for

Yah, I'd like to build
a snowman- but a
lopsided snowman
would be a sight...
Ain't it rough when
The kid in you
Jumped right up
...An' took a hike?

I love both poems, but I am leaning more towards this one ;-)

What a wonderful image you have conjured! This poem seems so simple, but is amazingly masterful. I love it.

You, me, Sameen: we all have winter on our minds! I enjoyed both poems.
