A Winter Message


A flake of snow in flurry thro' the air
Had landed as a kiss upon my cheek:
A secret message, just for me to share;
To take to heart but never dare to speak
About or presuppose to other eyes
Your open feelings - distant though they are.
And so, upon your lips, my OWN surprise:
A flake of snow returned from me afar.

There! little girl; don't cry!
