High upon a hill, between trees layered in a cover of white,

In front of a house that has existed for more than a hundred years,

He stands, always does he stand and guard this place as each Winter comes.

Through the dark, freezing nights, alone he watches all that is here,

He shows no fear, the cold does not harm him, time is the only enemy.

He survives, he lives everywhere and belongs to everyone, a snowman,

The lonely snowman exists but is created throughout time by those with hands,

Only an imagination can create a man made of snow that stands lonely once a year.
