THE COLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

It fell from a cloud
It fluttered around
From tree branch to garden,
All across town.

It hit the ground,
Was kicked back up
And floated onto
The wing of a duck.

A quack and a flap
Launched it again
On a skyward ride rarer
Than a tooth in a hen.

The view it had during
These falls and rises
Was chock fulla fun,
Adventure, surprises,

The real life kind sweeter
Than cookies or cake
That shows how cool it is
To be a snowflake.
