In silence they come tumbling down,
tossing twirling to the ground.
Hours pass...the piles grow higher.
Snowflake Souffle is what you desire!?!
In wonderment I sit and stare
at Mother Nature's creative flare.
In the far off clouds I see
a glistening white menagerie.
There's an arctic fox and albino deer,
a great white bear...but have no fear.
For they'll prance about in the billowy clouds,
'til the northern winds shoo the trio out.
To the earth they'll make their way,
this icy creation...more Snowflake Souffle.
Snowflakes and souffle — so fluffy and light.
But like people I know, similarities are slight.
As the snowflakes slowly drift on by,
I contemplate the years and sigh.
For, without a doubt, they come and go,
but what they may bring...one only knows.
