Christmas Poem XXII: “Snowflakes Fall”

Every year, I write a poem for Christmas, and include it in my Christmas cards to friends and family. For the days leading up to Christmas, I’m publishing all of my Christmas poems here, as a kind of Advent calendar.

Today’s poem was written in 2013.

Snowflakes fall on city streets
Slowing cars and crunching feet
Frosted panes and Christmas lights
Bring wonder to our town tonight

Snowflakes fall on meadows broad
A blanket from the loom of God
Christmas trees and drifting swirls
Spread grace across a wintry world

Snowflakes fall on shining steeples
Sounding bells and singing people
Christmas hymns and manger scenes
Tell the news that’s evergreen

Snowflakes fall from stars on high
Presents from a Santa sky
Yuletide joys and Christmas dreams
Share the love that Christmas means
