Snow and ice may be piled high with a crust

But when it's like this ... there's a certain trust
For the stuff mashes in and makes a groove ...
Which can be followed closely when you move

All one has to do to get out is just float downhill
Braking hard at the very bottom, becoming still
And then - to get back up ... you need take time
To set it up well, thence to follow the smooth lines
