In Winter I’m Rounder

    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.
