It's cold
Today is really cold
Way too cold cold
Polar bears would be shivering cold
Icicles are growing out of my nose cold
It is so cold
That the wind has to keep blowing just to stay warm
That wooly mammoths are stampeding through my yard
That the trees have begun to regrow their leaves
Because they need a blanket not to freeze
It is so cold
That birds have to glide like kites
Because they can't flap their wings
It is so cold
That fires have become spiky shards of ice beneath the chimney
It is so cold
That I'm going to pull my blanket tight
Watch the sun come up
Watch the bus drive by
And whisper to the frozen world
"Good night."
