Frosty the Jotun

Frosty the Jotun,
could scare off any troll
that hid behind hill, stone or tree,
with a freezing glare,
and blue black hair
the children all 'round
were glad on the day that they found
eggnog was the special key
to bringing friendship between
such a Rimethurs*
and the youngest members of humanity.

Oh Frosty the Jotun,
had a heart larger than you could see,
it glowed with joy
as each girl and boy
laughed and freely rode upon his back
singing yippee, yippee, yippee all the day.
Yes, he was happy and gay,
as he drank away at that eggnog
while the adults just looked on aghast and agog.

But the moment couldn't last,
as each day went past,
the weather grew warmer
and Frosty the Jotun
knew that soon he'd be floatin'
on to cooler climes or there'd be nothing left,
for his friends to see
but a bit of black here and there.
So with a tear in his eye
he said his goodbyes
then his cheeks puffed up,
and his hair flew about,
looking like a winter thunderstorm on the move.

Now don't be too sad,
'cause he'll be back this year
and we'll groove to his song
as the snow blows about
then the children will sing and shout
as they build replicas waiting each night
to see if old Frosty the Jotun
will march down the street again.
