Snowflakes - Poem by Patricia Grantham

A chilly blast of air rushes through the trees
They begin to sway to and fro as if in a trance
The skies change from clear blue to a misty gray
Cool air began to rise and then it began to snow

Winter begins to show its magnificent wonders
As the cold rain turns to brilliant snowflakes
Gently falls to the ground with sparkling majesty
Blanketing the earth like a sea of white glass

Falling to the earth twinkling like crystal stars
Fleeing as the sun peeps out of its hiding place
Melting each snowflake thats unique in every way
Just like a shining jewel fading into the sunlight

Then cleanses the earth with a burst of fresh air
So that the atmosphere will be refreshed and renewed
To be enjoyed and appreciated by every living thing
Fell like frozen tears then warmed by the hands of God

    This is so very beautiful. From start to finish - and much appreciated as it cooled me down, literally. We are experiencing 100 and above temps here, this day. (Report) Reply
