A Curious Character
Porkpie hat,
Oh ragtag broom,
Oh carrot nose
— I do not laugh —
For you too, I suppose,
Are nothing
More than sensitive skin
Without sunscreen,
A mere collection
Of water
Holding ground.
Stoically resisting,
Positively glistening
With perspiration,
You cheerfully withstand
The relentless interrogation
The cheerful sun makes;
How much I admire
The composure it takes,
Oh snowman!
