Melinda Made a Snowman

Melinda made a snowman,
which she gave a carrot nose.
She placed some rubber boots
on what she figured were his toes.

Melinda gave him charcoal eyes,
and after one last pat,
upon her snowman’s frozen head
she placed her father’s hat.

She thought him nearly finished,
and then as a final note,
she took her father’s favorite tie
and draped it ’round his throat.

Melinda was so proud of him,
she rushed upstairs with glee.
She hollered to her mom and dad
to “Hurry, come and see!”

But by the time they came downstairs
Melinda cried and cried.
“Melinda,” Mom and Dad said,
“snowmen must be made outside.”
