THE PLEASURES OF A SNOWBOUND MAN

My children turned to wander home,

Left me in the field alone,

To ride their sled upon the snow,

And see how very fast they go,

With lone resolve, I gathered pace,

As air began to sting my face,

Passed the point of turning back,

Steely runners carving tracks,

With speeding glee, and hair blown wild,

This man became a silly child,

Until at last I came to rest,

To contemplate my merry jest,

From where my walking feet began

To learn the pleasures of a snowbound man.
