The Sno-Tracks Story
This snowman is called Sno-Tracks.
He is the Arctic Circle’s mailman and top snow act.
This small fella was built short and compact,
so trees and their limbs don’t create roadblocks or drawbacks.
He is a friend to the moose, grizzlies, caribou and kodiaks,
who all agree Sno-Tracks skis adeptly and fast,
speedier than Detroit’s best Pontiac.
This snowman you will never be able to pass.
Sno-Tracks skis sparkle with a glittering shellac,
which he re-applies nightly along with a quick sharpening and wax.
In the wee hours he settles in for a quick nap,
but not before carefully packing and prepping his mail sack,
He never takes time off to lay low and kickback,
so Sno-Tracks skis have never seen their rack.
Every day he rises with the sun and puts on his jacket and cap,
and pole-less he ventures off without a map,
delivering mail by creating his own trails and paths.
His course is charted by memory with stars as his only fallback.
“The mail must deliver” he says each day as his sack hits his back,
“One day I will relax, but I made a promise to Santa that I cannot retract,
besides, there is snow in the forecast and I want first tracks!”
