Catch a snowflake.

   If you could catch a snowflake
   And make it last a day,
   Would you tuck it in your pocket?
   Would you take it out to play?

   Would you put it on your finger
   And wear it as a ring?
   Would you toss it in the air?
   Would you tie it to a string?

   Would you show it to your friends
   Or keep it to yourself?
   Would you stick it to a window
   Or place it on a shelf?
   But snowflakes catch on lashes
   And melt into your hair.

   They land upon pink noses
   And leave a cold spot there.
   You cannot catch a snowflake
   And make it last a day
   Because snowflakes catch on mittens,
   And then they melt away!
