The Backyard Skating Rink
by Frank Paylor
Sudbury, Ontario, Canada
October 9, 1996
 

Alas it's good old wintertime, 
the snow will fall and bells will chime.
The ice will form on lakes and rivers
giving some of us the shivers.
While children dressed in warmer clothing
will in the snow go dashing, roving.
They sure will find fun things to do
not stand and freeze as grownups do.

For summertime has passed us by 
gone are the warm days of July.
The winter is a whole new story
Jack Frost is out in all his glory.
The time has come now I should think
to plan our backyard skating rink.
One of the very best of places to bring 
warm smiles to sweet young faces.

Just think of all the happy sounds 
of children skating round and round.
Enjoying life without a care 
their voices ringing in the air.
Life could no better be than this
this really is too good to miss.
Til' that sad moment they all dread
when suddenly, it's time for bed.
