Snowflakes falling from the sky,
by Annalee Hopkins Somerville
Landing on my face as it blows by,
Snow Angels something you never outgrow,
I'm wrapped in their beauty covered in snow.
Up in the clouds so billowy white,
I'm wrapped in a blanket of sheer delight,
Falling from the sky without any sound,
Snowflakes scattered covering the ground.
Sun’s rays riding the snow’s drift,
Masquerading the winds sudden shift,
I squint to see the sun’s shine,
Little snowflakes caught in my eyes.
Children bundled in warm clothes,
Toboggan’s in hand their faces aglow,
Snowballs, snowmen, game of war,
Digging tunnels until your knees are sore.
Families gathering around the fire,
Sharing memories of the heart’s desire,
Piano playing heartfelt carolling songs,
Playing, laughing and singing along.
Children snuggled in for the night,
Snowmen glistening in the moonlight,
Waiting for children to come out and play,
Hoping tomorrow’s another snow day.
