Acrostic 9. Snow.

Something has whispered. Snow.
Nothing is moving. Snow.
Ox-eyes are ringing. Snow.
Whiteness is reigning. Snow.

Acrostic 12. Snow.

(It’s connected with Acrostic 11.)

Sing to the fairy winter wood.
Nod, just nod the talking trees.
Open your soul to their mood.
Wander in the thoughtful fields.

There once was quite an enormous frog
That got crazy listening to rock.
Then it jumped on a drum
Croaked and popped out its tongue,
And the people liked watching that frog.

Sweet theme 2. He is a sweet tooth.

He is a sweet tooth, my little sonny.
He always spends his pocket money
On candy floss and other sweet things. Last
Sunday he spent all. He’s having a fast
Now. Since that great day he has spent
No money as no one has lent
Him even 15 pence to buy
Some sweets on the counter by
Which he is showing his sorrow.
He can only dream of tomorrow.

Its tail and make a loud

Bad problems.

Like to taste this snake fried.

Is that spring going to come?

When March was sleeping, two other
Gentlemen began rather
A heated argument. The 1st
Was April, the 2nd, of course,
Was May. So, April and May
Were both crying that the main
Month of spring was… Guess which one, but
Although March was in the hut
(Number 2, there’re four huts all
In all) , you should choose April or
May. April said, “It’s my time when
Snow-drops begin to bloom, and
Everyone can feel spring’s come.”
“Ha-ha! ” laughed May and added, “Some
Snowstorm, and no one can
See your tiny snow-drops. When
I rule nature, all the trees are
In blossom and bushes too! ”
“But
