“The Bold Snow-Man”
There he stood, the snow-man.
Oh! the sturdy snowman.
Grand and white
Thro’ the night,
Frozen quite.
“I am bold in the cold!”
Thought the snowman.
Melting stood the snowman.
Such a feeble snowman!
Then he shrank
Till he sank
Limp and lank.
“Bold I’m not when it’s hot!”
Wept the snowman.
