Winter in the Forest
(Read in 3/4 or Waltz time. Some ‘rests’ occur, some line starts are 3’rd beat in next musical line.)
It’s Wintertime out in the Forest;
It’s Wintertime here in the Glenn.
I love the snow in the Forest,
Each time it comes ’round again.
Skiing to visit with fam’ly,
‘Shoeing* to feed-up the stock.
In Wintertime all of the fam’ly,
Take up to bed a hot rock.
Fresh Wintertime air makes us happy,
Cold and clean air is a blast!
Christmas and snow make us happy;
Christmas both future and past.
Ask me which season is better,
I’ll have no clear answer for you:
Spring, Summertime, Fall, yes I love them,
they’re all of my favorites, too!
