Winter's clothed in dreary skies;
Her wolf-howls tear the air.
Her biting teeth gnash at our skins -
With no respect or care.
Squirrels long have stored their nuts
And swallows left our lands,
Whilst winter rides on cold north winds
That freeze the nose and hands.
Let's banish winter with bright lights;
And cheer despondent streets.
Let's fill our homes with Christmas fun
And spoil ourselves with treats.
Let's wrap ourselves in festive fun!
Bring forth that Christmas cheer,
And, by bridling problems, just for now,
Unleash a brand new year.
