The Snowman

The Snowman


The fattest snowman ever seen

Was built on Christmas Eve,

A scarf of green and Dickie bow

And a hat would you believe.


Two lumps of coal for his eyes

And a carrot for his nose,

We gave him twigs to use as arms

Set him nicely in a pose.


We called our snowman Charlie

After our great grandad,

Of him we all had memories

Some happy and some sad.


We were watching from our window

When a rabbit came to call

he’d sit there waiting patiently

for Charlies nose to fall.


He came back each day for a week

Just looking up to think,

The snow was thawing all around

Charlie began to shrink.


The thaw came thick, the rabbit too

Charlies head lay on the floor,

Nibble, nibble, crunch, crunch, crunch

And Charlie was no more.
