In Winter I’m Rounder

Print Share
    In winter I’m rounder
    and fatter than before.
    I’m wearing coats and sweaters
    and woolen hats galore.
    My hands are as plump as kittens
    when I’m wearing winter mittens.
    My legs in thick, snug snow pants
    look like an elephant’s.
    Indeed, I must confess
    that when I do undress,
    I feel as small and light
    as a bird flown out of sight.
