SNOWBALL-TIME, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When the snow first comes, so fine an' thin
Last Line: If ever any snow gets down inside.
Subject(s): Children; Snow; Childhood


When the snow first comes, so fine an' thin,
It's good for snow ice-cream; an' by-an'-by
Some evenin' we will fill a heapin' tin,
And drip hot syrup in—oh me, oh my!
Until this week the snow has been too dry,
But now it packs, and snow fights will begin.
We've built a block-house with a roof so high
We only stoop a little when we're in!
I've got some boots that come above my knees—
Last winter, too, they were my special pride;
I plunge through any snow-drifts that I please,
Or climb on top of 'em an' sit an' slide.
But Jimminy! my toes begins to freeze
If ever any snow gets down inside.
