The frigid wind twisted playfully around me,
It was the Christmas season finally!
A snowy blanket covered the fields white!
Even the trees were quite the sight!
The snow was so soft as I walked along,
The sound of the wind was so strong.
A blizzard came over night
Turning my whole world clean and bright.
I turned around and gazed behind me,
My trail of prints was all I could see.
I walked quite aways more before I stumbled upon a frozen lake.
My heart jolted and I did a doubletake.
In the center there sat a duck,
Whose middle was frozen, he was stuck!
Carefully yet desperately, I climbed onto the ice,
I knew that my risk to save him was suffice.
Trembling now I leaned over chiseled,
Away at the ice till it fizzled.
Quickly now I scooped him up,
He look so pitiful like a soggy pup!
I took him home and cleaned him, I sigh
Tomorrow I'll set him free and away he'd fly.
The snowy world had many adventures,
Even in its frozen temperatures!
