Winter Poem

Poem by Nikki Giovanni

once a snowflake fell
on my brow and i loved
it so much and i kissed
it and it was happy and called its cousins
and brothers and a web
of snow engulfed me then
i reached to love them all
and i squeezed them and they became
a spring rain and i stood perfectly
still and was a flower

    gay what do you mean by gay? because this poem isn't gay, its a good poem, and why is your name also drug dealer? because you trying to act cool.
