Where would the first snowflake of the season choose to go?

If I were the first snowflake
Gliding on frosty wings
Of the East-Westerly bound
Gentle but icy winds,

As I came down from heavens
And heard His gentle voice:
“I give you the privilege
To tell me what’s your choice:

Would you like to sit down on
A tender blushing cheek,
So that from its warm fragrance,
Some comfort you may seek?

Would you like to alight on
A lonely winter rose,
So that you may comfort it,
As a hardy wind blows?

Would you like to mingle with
Majestic mountain snow,
So that through it, your splendour,
To the world you might show?”

I would humbly say: “My Lord,
Let Thy sweet will be done.
I would be contented in
Your choice, whichever one.”
