Winter Morning by Ogden Nash









Winter Morning

by Ogden Nash

Winter is the king of showmen,

Turning tree stumps into snow men

And houses into birthday cakes

And spreading sugar over lakes.

Smooth and clean and frosty white,

The world looks good enough to bite.

That's the season to be young,

Catching snow flakes on your tongue.


Snow is snowy when it's snowing,

I'm sorry it's slushy when it's going.
