The Sno-Track Story
This snowman is named 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 say that Sno-Tracks can ski, and skis fast.
He is said to be speedier than Detroit’s best Pontiac.
In short, this is one snowman you will never be able to pass.
Sno-Tracks skis sparkle with a special glittering shellac,
every night he preps them for the next day with a sharpening and wax.
Then he carefully packs his knapsack,
and in the wee hours settles in for a quick nap.
He never takes time off to lay low and kickback,
so Sno-Tracks skis never see the rack.
Every day he rises with the sun and puts on his skis, jacket and cap,
and without poles in hand he sets out without a map,
to pick up and deliver the mail, creating his own paths and trails.
He charts his course by memory with the stars as his only fallback.
“The mail must deliver” he says every morning as he puts on his sack,
“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!”
