Delicate and Soft


T o s s e d

By the


Silent


Wind.

It gracefully falls





Down




To



The








White









Earth.
Tiny ice crystals
Brighten up the sky,

Shining


Like a star.

How many people

Have


Felt
This chilled flurry upon their cheeks?

Like white rain
It Crackles
As it hits the surface,
Resting on trees,
Or upon rooftops
The
Beauty


Is


Undeniable
How many people

Have

Left





Desolated footprints
Into this white sheet,
So
perfect

and
soft?

Melting

To the touch,
Falling

Every
Second,

How many people

Have


Exhaled


Such warm



Sweet




Breath,
It can be seen through the

Blanketed air.





Snow;

A Wonder of it’s own,


A priceless gift



Delivered from the




Heavens.

Miraculous as it is,
So very soon it will be gone,

hence catch it while you can,


and enjoy this winter wonderland

My class had decided to go outside and collect inspiration from the falling snow. Ater we came inside, we wrote about our experience, and that is where this poem originated.
