  • "On a Christmas Day

    we were mushing our way

    over the Dawson trail.

    Talk of your cold!

    Through the parka's fold

    it stabbed like a driven nail.

    If our eyes we'd close,

    then the lashes froze

    till sometimes we couldn't see;

    It wasn't much fun,

    but the only one

    to whimper was Sam McGee."

    -Robert W. Service
