A Cold Day by Carolyn Wells

In winter time when ice and sleet
Make slidy places on the street,
The children early leave their beds
And rush out with their skates and sleds.

All merrily the little dears
Throw snowballs in each other’s ears;
And thus with pretty playful ways
Beguile the white and wintry days.

Oh, Venerable Veterans,
I hate to disarrange your plans;
But truly, if you try this game
You will go home all stiff and lame.
