Birth of a Baby Snowflake! by Simyra Taback ©


Birth Of A Baby Snowflake!

Earthbound Snowflakes by Simyra Taback




What does a snowflake fear,
As it falls from its home in heaven that it held so dear.

Falling with beauty, falling with grace,
It spills out from heaven with a gentle pace.

Each so unique, so one of a kind,
If you look closely at it, the beauty you will find.

Behold its wintery wonder with no delay.
Take in its beauty before it melts away.

Tigger in the Snow!

Tigger in the Snow
(not a happy look!!!)


I like to walk on fresh fallen snow
The kind that whispers and speaks.
It sings a song as I walk along
With crackles and scrunches and squeaks.
