If you could 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!
