After Snow Play

    After a day when I’ve played in the snow

    Till my toes are atingle, my nose is aglow,

    I pull off my snowsuit all soggy and red,

    Unfasten my cap; take if off from my head,

    And then Mother says, “You need warming through,

    So here’s something warm I’ve made just for you.”

    She hands me a mug of chocolate to drink,

    And as I am sipping, I always think,

    This is the very best taste that can be!

    My mother is good to make it for me.
