A bit of a poem inspired by a snowflake.
         One sparkling snowflake sings, "Catch me if you can."
         Soon she's swirling swiftly past my mittened hand.
         I hear her giggle, it sounds like tinkling ice.
         As she skips I slip, stumble, not once, but twice.
         "Do not give up. Let's play. Isn't this such fun?"
         In reply, I tried to catch her with my tongue.
         "Oh ho, nice try. You haven't caught me just yet."
         Then that silver spark spun a quick pirouette.
         I chased that snowflake 'round and 'round the white trees.
         'Til I was dizzy and fell upon my knees.
         Softly, slowly, my frozen friend floated down.
         She kissed my cheek with a wee whisper of sound.
         "Come on, join me. Let's tumble in the fresh snow.
         Have you made a snow angel? Give it a go."
         That's the last I saw of my skipping snow swirl.
         She must have twirled off to meet another girl.
