I built a man of snow one day;
I dressed him up real nice.
I then stepped back and sized him up
as he stood there on ice.

I thought he was quite debonair
in woolen scarf and hat,
but he looked so very lonely,
and I wasn't having that.

So I commenced to form a mate;
it took me quite a while.
I placed her by the snowman's side;
I'm sure I saw him smile.

Now, that night late I went outside
and much to my surprise
I saw my snow-made couple
embrace before my eyes!

Their happiness was evident,
no loneliness in view;
they snuggled close together
and kissed like couples do.

I can't explain that magic night;
I've really thought it out.
All I can say it was Christmas time,
and love's what it's about.
