Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

by Amelia

Main Characters: Ezra and Vin

A sequel to Ezra's war with the Squirrel in Over the River and Through the Woods.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Inside Nettie's small cabin, together they all worked and played,
Setting up the tree, decorating it in laughter with the ending day.
Vin and Ezra heading out in the falling snow, for more wood to burn in the fire,
Piling the logs in open arms, he didn't see the attack that was dire.

It doesn't show signs of stopping,
And I brought some corn for popping;
The lights are turned way down low,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

With dusk setting in and shadows deep appearing,
Ezra couldn't tell how the corn cob came by his nose to nearing.
Reaching down for another log, until his eyes did see,
there among the stack his Nemesis, shocked he was to be.

When we finally say good night,
How I'll hate going out in the storm;
But if you really hold me tight,
All the way home I'll be warm.

Ezra stating, "I can't believe that creature is still holding me in his grudge."
“Ez, I think you better offer some kind of peace treaty," Vin smiled, with a nudge.
Frowning at the suggestion, until thinking well, he had taken the furry rodent's home,
He unwrapped his wool scarf, settling it around the squirrel like a nest in a dome.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we're still good-bye-ing,
But as long as you love me so.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

A evening of joyous warmth, ending with time to return to town,
With promises from all that tomorrow together dinner was bound.
Horses were saddled, stopping out front for a final farewell of the night,
Before he could mount, there on the leather horn, wrapped in wool, was a sight.
The furry head sticking out, eyes steady and waiting for acceptence and claim,
Ezra mounted, tucking the fur and wool in closer, his friend will need a name.
Vin riding close, a smile adorning his face as he offered a knowledge of bit,
"Hey Ez, I guess you have your own allure, for that lady squirrel, for you has a fit."

Let it snow, let it snow, let it Snow.......

Walking down the board walk, checking all the doors, Vin looked up as movement caught his sight,
In the window of Ezra's room he could see the two sitting, rocking, with behind them the shine of the light.
He couldn't stop the grin that appeared on his lips, thinking on his friend saying she needed a name,
"I wonder which one of the two he said did he choose. Both were real nice, if the critter does tame.
Guess he'll tell me tomorrow if I should call her Miss Teri or Miss Carole, they's both pretty just the same."
