Clara the Blue & Joseph the Red

The Castle is cold
said Joseph the Red
Just like the icicles that hang from your bed.
Thatís because Iím an Ice-Witch
said Clara the Blue
Youíll remember that Zelda, our mother, was too
I know that! snapped Joseph
But before I get old
One day Iíd like porridge that wasnít so cold!
And the toast is so hard
Itís a total disgrace
You could use it to sandpaper spots off your face!
But I think itís cosy
said Clara the Blue
and if you were an Ice-Wizard, you might think so too.
Thank Heavens Iím not
said that fieriest of Wizards
So Iíll just pop outside and stoke up the lizards....
