After Snow Play

“After Snow Play,” Friend, Jan. 1972, 29

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.
