Baby, it’s cold outside…

Standing still as you are told,

moved to the side always away.

No hat, no gloves?

You don’t get to stay warm or run about to play.Put that little back against that cold brick wall

and move not an inch.

You forget those hats or gloves?

You must now stand there

and wait for that cold air to pinch.

20 minutes later, when all others travel back inside,

you have stood like a soldier, with no movement


to break the rules like little ones do and forget those hats and gloves.

Stand there…cold…don’t move

While the adults watch from the warmth of inside.
