The Choice

Some say it’s always nice to know
That seasons come and seasons go,
While others would prefer the fun,
Of lazing ‘neath a Tropic-sun.

Then there are those who wish to go
Where they may romp in Winter snow
And, instead of “Here”, would rather be
Where they could enjoy the “Apres Ski”!

Am I “not with it” or even “too old”
To laze in Sun, or romp in “cold”?
Or is it that I’m really wise
And like it under Scottish skies?

My “ain fireside” is all I ask,
When cold wind blows and howl and blast!
That Tropic-sun? – It’s not for me
I’ve made my choice – It’s bonnie Dundee!
