The Snow Flake
There it came out from the sky
Fluttering softly, gentle as a sigh
First one, then a few,
Then a million or two
Each one unique in pattern and form
Together they joined so perfectly
A Blanket so thick, building silently.
Children awoke with glee in their eyes
Gathering up their winter surprise
Adults too went walking afar
To place their feet upon Virgin Stars
Sunlight glistened on crystallised ice
Breath on wind, the feeling was nice
Red rosy cheeks, as icy winds felt
While dogs jumped in air catching balls that did melt.
Imprints of boots with sledges in tow
Trudging up hills, to slide and let go
Magical, glistening, sparkling pure white
A world it transformed, and all overnight.
And it all began with a flake or two
A carpet of white, just waiting for you
Winter wonderland, embrace and partake
In the beautiful gift of a humble Snow Flake..
