    The Southern Californian and the Snow
    By jo spumoni


    I dreamed of a white Christmas
    Like Bing Crosby said I should
    So I bought myself some mittens
    And a jacket with a hood

    I drove up to the mountains
    The road winding to and fro
    Searching for the shimmer
    Of the freshly fallen snow

    And when at last I found it
    Amidst the tranquil green
    Of the forest and the pine trees
    Just like a Christmas scene

    I stepped out to admire it
    And feel the mountain's hold
    Only to discover
    That snow is really cold!
