Snowman Blues by Paul Curtis

Snowman Blues by Paul Curtis


Out of the snowy lawn 
The snowman grew 
Wearing a hat and scarf 
The way that you do 

With pebbles for eyes 

pressed into the snow 
A smiley twig mouth 
And a large carrot nose 
 
He’s a magnificent site 
The snowman that grew 
But he’s just snow and ice
And no substitute for you 
 
I wish you were here 
To chase the blues away 
I wish you’d come back 
To me for Christmas day

  4. Wait... this was written by a man... about a snowman... that reminded him of a man he loves...

    I'd say this poem is gay but that just seems too obvious.
