Clothes Made the Man

The neighbor kids built it

A snowman in her yard

While working long, and hard

They still had fun

Watching through her curtains

Delighting in the gift

That gave her such a lift

And brought a smile

Carrots and coal and twigs

For a face, arms, and hands

Their creation looked grand

What was missing

They knocked upon her door

He needed clothes to wear

Had she something to share

Of course, she did

An old wool hat found she

And so stylish he’d be

Her dark, gray scarf
