Spring Snow
Falling heavy wet flakes of snow
Pelting faster, then drifting slow;
Branches laden with globs of white,
Struggling, remain strongly upright
Bright transitioning snowy rain.

Lighter feathers dropping in sheets,
Touching down, snowing hard not weak;
Wet flakes weigh on bended branches
Bowing white tipped green fir flanches;
Bright transitioning snowy rain.

Wind blasts speedily whip and blow
Swirling snowflakes once softly slow;
Gathering speed, twirling faster,
Forming visual alabaster;
Bright transitioning snowy rain.

White inches heap and plunge from trees;
Snow mist idly floats in the breeze.
Watching safe are we from within,
Happily knitting, staying warm;
Bright transitioning snowy rain.

Clear opaque translucent droplets,
Mixing with flakes, pearly white bits
Of achromatic rain’s rumbling;
Steady downward icy tumbling,
Bright transitioning snowy rain.

Light cold sleeting wintry rain falls,
Until white ice frost covers all.
