Tradition of Christmas Past
By David Smith November30, 2009
All the Christmas songs, without the breath of snow;
Something is seriously wrong,
In Canada as you know.
We are noted for the snow, and the arctic chill;
The uncomfortable fall weather is not a pleasant thrill.
Tradition of winters is only in Christmas’ past
With memories of mom and dad;
If childhood could only last;
Tobogganing and sledding and outdoor fun and games
It’s only a reflection;
Global warming now we blame.
When our ancestors said, “It was cold;”
I can certainly believe;
And as the Arctic’s melting, we pretend we are naive.
