FIRST FROST PICTORIAL
(sing to “Animal Crackers in My Soup”)
Chrysanthemums are askew
Heavy-laden with frozen dew,
Frosty grass is all aglow
With something that reminds of snow!
Yellow sun pops glistening rays
Over leaves with crystal glaze,
Tree trunks darken from melting frost
Making sure no heat is lost!
Short-tailed fairies in waters dwell
Rising up in the moist-er dells,
Stretching lithe backs to catch the sun
Raising their arms to the Holy One!
First frost feathers melt away
Until another autumn day,
Flowers straighten getting warm
Glad they have escaped a storm!
