Poem: SNOW by Kathy Stemke


The breath of the crisp air is light
The bitter sky is full and white
I dance and twirl around so slow
Then on my knees I pray for snow
Hoping,
Waiting,
Waltzing along
For flakes to fall and sing their song

Snow gathers and laughs in the sky
Then falls like angels whirling by
Pure crystal flakes make my heart glow
I give thanks and welcome the snow
Dancing,
Flirting,
Dashing, go
Swirling down on the earth below

Snow covers the troubled, soiled streets
And hides much pain under the sleet
Each flake will soon fade out of sight
And melt like mist in morning light
Cleansing,
Clinging,
Healing woe
Merciful God! Your love I know

I've haven't been a lover of snow for many years, but I loved your poem. I also liked the photo that you posted with it.

Well done, Kathy. I like the feel of the falling snow that the line length inside each verse evokes.

Kathy, that is beautiful! Well written, enjoyable to read, and it speaks of much more than snow, doesn't it? Thank you for sharing!
