Snowflake Tales

Caught up in clouds way up in the sky, suddenly, on a given day it is released and it falls. Touched by cold air and pulled by gravity, it tumbles down so gently and delicately. Slowly it parachutes silently, until caught by a tree, a rooftop, or the ground.

There it resides while the weather is cold, until it melts, or until it is carried away by rainfall. Where it goes from there of course, has been studied and discovered by many, but that’s not the point of this snowflake’s story.


My Snowflake Tale


Sparkly snowflakes can be seen
Through every cloudy season
Whenever fog rolls in
And when walking through mist

When the weather is cold enough
To turn dew into frost
An image of what once was
As in an instant snap shot
Once again they can be seen
Through frost on the ground
On rooftops trees and leaves

So if Christmas comes and goes
Without you near or here
Or without a single snowflake
To tumble out of clouds
I will see them wherever
My mind pleases to
In frost fog mist and dew

So please don’t fret or fear
If you can’t be near
Sparkly snowflakes I will see
This Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

But please remember this:
Every day is much more dear
When you are here and near

Part 15 : SnowPuckLove


“Sweet Snowflake Sally
Are you still with me?”
Pete Puck somewhat distraught
Feared Sally melted off
In little Johnny’s glove

The puck now in Luke’s hand, Johnny brushed the snow off his gloves. All covered in snow after piling one snowball on top of another, the snowman was just about done. Everyone tapped and brushed the snow from their jackets and pants, filling the air with a drum-like cadence.

“Sally sweet Snowflake Sally
Are you still here?
Or are you in the snow
Way out there in the field?”

“I have a great idea to dress up our snowman.” Luke said to the kids, “Johnny, could you get my hockey glove? It’s in my duffel bag by the ice rink.”

Without hesitation, Johnny ran off and all the other kids chased after him.

“I’ll get it!”

“No I wanna get it!”

Kids shouted one after the other as they rushed to the side of the ice rink, but Johnny got there first and just as quickly ran back with Luke’s hockey glove in hand.

“Oh Snowflake Sally
If you’re no longer here
Please be out in the field
And not melted into tears”

Saddened and distraught
Poor Peter Puck
Had fallen in love
With this snowflake sweetheart

Luke took his hockey glove and nestled it in the crook of the snowman’s neck.

“There you go!” He shouted proudly, “Let me introduce … our new hockey mascot!”

Only a single tear
Would Peter Puck shed
No longer stuck with Sally
But a snowman instead

Then tingle trickle twinkle
His tear turned to frost
And another tingle twinkle
The snowman chuckled

“Oh Peter Puck
I must’ve dozed off
Where are we now
Off the ground up in a loft?”

The kids cheered and the players agreed. Luke’s lucky puck would not go missing again for this hockey season. In the hockey glove, close to the snowman’s heart, it would preside over the ice rink and their games.

Needless to say
Peter Puck’s dismay
Quickly turned into sheer
Gleeful merriment and cheer

“Sally! Snowflake Sally!
You’re still here!”
“Of course sweet Pete
I said I’d never leave”

Then a tingle trickle twinkle
The glove must’ve sparkled
When they both puckered up
For a Snowflake Puck kiss
Close to the snowman’s heart!

Part 14 : SnowPuck


So much fun to be had
On this snowy snow day!

Everyone once again
Gathered in the field
Where Sally and Pete
Are surrounded with friends

Cindy Carlie Luke and Kris
And many many more
Are rolling snowflakes
Into great big snowballs

So much fun to be had
On this snowy snow day!

“Cindy! Cindy! Look what I found!” Her friend Johnny screeched with excitement as he ran towards her.

“Luke! Look! Johnny found your puck!” Cindy, just as thrilled, shouted out and ran alongside Johnny.

“Should I take it to the ice rink for the hockey practice?” Johnny asked Luke, still holding the puck in his gloved hand.

“You know, I think I have other plans for this puck.” Cindy and her friends all looked at Luke curiously as Johnny handed him the puck.

So much fun to be had
On this snowy snow day!

Big kids and little kids
Skating on the rink
Swishing and sliding
Pucks with hockey sticks

Paul and Patrick
Pierce and Pierre Puck
There’s even a Pauline
And Penelope Puck!

So much fun to be had
On this snowy snow day!
