Must the snowflake be so fleeting,
In its wintry frozen greeting?
Melting our hearts with intricate memories
What story would each snowflake freeze?
In time to unlock our hearts in global love
As the silent, frosty gift descends from above
Swirling and dancing before the windowpane
A zillion snowflakes no two alike in the frame
Lacy and fragile each snowflake in frozen glory
Diverse complexity tells myriad lifetime stories
There’s great beauty in this master plan
Treasure the infinite design because you can
Each snowflake new, six sided on view
Frozen snow crystal lets us renew
Our childlike marvel and joyful heart
Re-capture each moment before you part
Like life’s short lived past
Must the snowflake melt so fast?
