I Didn’t Want to Leave My Perch
I didn't want to leave my perch,
When I looked out,and with a lurch,
Saw what was coming down outside.
I wanted to stay inside and hide.
But yellow dog, she needs to run,
make some tracks, and have some fun,
So I wrapped up reluctantly,
Put on my boots, and went to see,
If I could tolerate the wind,
Walk a while and get back in,
before my nose was cold and red,
Unwrap and get back in my bed.
But,hey! the snow upon the trees,
Is beautiful, and that fair breeze,
Is not as bad as I had thought,
Think I'll extend my morning walk.
And tell the Father up above,
That I'll keep basking in His love,
If days are bright with morning sun,
Or white with snow 'till day is done.
