The snow out there looks pretty but cold.
I’d go for a walk if I were bold.

Youngsters slide from the top of the hills
Over and over they enjoy thrills.

Some people go for a slide on it.
Some of us would rather watch and sit.

Just south of the Mason Dixon line
There’s not much winter and that’s just fine.

What we called cold those up north would laugh.
Now it’s colder there for man and calf.

While fifty there is chilly to them,
We’d call it mild to tease on a whim.

Winter is a lovely time of year
If you stay inside - no car to steer.

For me who grew up down in the South,
Transplanted North - well now, shut my mouth!
