SNOW-FLAKES, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Whenever a snow-flake leaves the sky
Last Line: "t is summer!"" -- and it melts away."
Subject(s): Nature; Snow; Summer

WHENEVER a snow-flake leaves the sky,
It turns and turns to say "Good-bye!
Good-bye, dear clouds, so cool and gray!"
Then lightly travels on its way.
And when a snow-flake finds a tree,
"Good-day!" it says -- "Good-day to thee!
Thou art so bare, and lonely, dear,
I'll rest and call my comrades here."
But when a snow-flake, brave and meek,
Lights on a rosy maiden's cheek,
It starts -- "How warm and soft the day!
'T is summer!" -- and it melts away.
