I Want to Build a Snowman -- a snowman poem/a summer poem

Gregory K.

I want to build a snowman
With arms that reach so high.
I’d use a carrot for his nose,
Green peppers for each eye.

I want to build a snowman
With icicles for teeth.
I’d put him in a floppy hat
And add a wig beneath.

I want to build a snowman,
But my dream seems out of reach.
You see, today’s July 18th,
And I’m here at the beach!

Happy summer and happy Poetry Friday, too. Kelly is on the roundup this week. Go on. Check it out.

...with the weather we've had here, the likelihood is that I could build a snowman. Or possibly something out of mud...

:)Happy Summer!

I'm a teacher and I'd like to display your poem (along with your name, of course) on a bulletin board for January. Do I have your permission to do this?
