it came
stealing slowly across the lawn
on whispers of wind

it fell
floating gently down to rest
in a blanket of white

and there it now lies
in the dawn
in peace
in silence
in complete innocence and beauty

like new fallen snow
he came

    • Thanks! I found the photo at National Geographic’s website. They allow amateurs to upload photographs. It was hard to pick just one, but I loved this photograph.

  1. Lovely. The word ‘softly’, to start it with that – it just immediately created softness. A really lovely poem.
