A Pure, White Snowflake...

A Pure, White Snowflake...

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I thought I saw a snowflake fall from the sky
I stood there watching for others that would surely come
Another snowflake fell on my nose
As two more fell on my cheek

I felt excitement inside my heart
It's snowing, it's snowing
I wanted to run, and twirl around
Like a little girl, a little child

This is the effect snow has on me
It makes me feel happy, light in heart
I want to make snow cream
Eat it by the crackling fireplace

I love to snuggle up in my warm coat
Along with a colorful scarf
Put my soft mittens to my face
Close my eyes, feel such happiness

It's snowing, it's snowing
There's no telling how deep it'll get
I don't care how deep it'll be
I just want to play in the snow like a child

Forget all my grief, sadness
That weighs down my heart
I want to be like a snowflake
Run, twirl, fall to the white ground

Look up into the sky as the flakes
Fall on me, into my face
I'm a snowflake on the ground
No thoughts, no sadness, no pain

I jump up and run, twirl around
My hair turns white with all the snow
I have no thoughts to cause me pain
Because I can only concentrate on... being a snowflake

All I can see is white
All I can feel is white
I know nothing more than
Being a snowflake... a pure, white snowflake


  1. I think we all wish we could be something else sometimes. I know sometimes I would like to be something else just to escape from every day life problems. Just for a little while--not permanently. Maybe a snowflake would be the "temp" thing because snowflakes are temporary. I can just see you running and catching those snowflakes!! What fun that would be! Love, Ms. Nancy
