Are You Not Snow?
Are you not snow, the daughter of a cold winter spell?
You sure do have the ways of the raindrop
Only gentler do you fall
Like a wizened leaf falling off an old tree
But white is such a sad color on you
Assorted colors of the rainbow,
Those would look glam on you
But you chose not the refulgence of colors
Preferring a monochrome flaunting such as of nightly emanation
Are you not snow, a forgiving curse of the thawing sea?
I have seen you cringing amidst the clouds
At such you tear into drizzle and mist
Like a lover scorned, somewhat forward as it were
Something is surely brewing up there
I should think you are a bit immoral for my taste
Reason why I will tiptoe whenever you are around
