Escaping the Snow

Playing with Words on a Sunny Evening
with apologies to Robert Frost
Whose words these were I think you know
His bones are in the graveyard, though
He will not mind me playing here
To give his words a novel glow

A lot of folks might think it queer
To change a work that they revere
But I've no task to undertake
This longest evening of the year

They'd give their little heads a shake
And ask if this was some piss-take
But I would claim, although it's cheap
A parody's no piece of cake

His words are lovely, dark and deep
And thus respect will always reap
So Robert Frost in peace can sleep
So Robert Frost in peace can sleep
