Snow - Poem by Richard Lackman

As flakes fall softly through the chilling air
And land one on another all around
They cover what was previously bare
Obscuring details of the rocky ground

The snow creates a soft un-trodden layer
That hushes all the sounds of normal life
And in so doing leaves us unaware
Of vexing troubles and our daily strife

And so it is that God created snow
To help each one of us to comprehend
The beauty we will surely come to know
Once life on earth at last comes to an end

    A new one. And another gem! I look forward to more of your poetry! I know you are well published already but, you are more than qualified to publish your writing and poetry! My mom actually printed these out to hold onto! We are memorizing them like we did/do with all our favorite poems! (Report) Reply
