BLIZZARD FAMILY ROBINSON

BLIZZARD FAMILY ROBINSON*

(New Lyrics to: “Animal Crackers in My Soup”)

Mama wants to make some soup,

If power goes out we can feed a troop…

Candles and flashlights all prepared

For just in case our adventure’s “shared”.

Blizzard rages all around

Safe inside our sleep is sound…

We have enough groceries for the blast,

Including ice cream that may not last!

Storm over, here comes the sun,

Digging out–we make it fun—

Shoveling up and down the walk…

Taking a break to watch a red-tailed hawk.

Back to business next week,

Until then play hide and seek…

Blessed our children all know

That this adventure in love will grow.

 

–Jonathan Caswell
