The Snowflake Which Is Now And Hence Forever

 Will it last? he says.
Is it a masterpiece? Will generation after generation Turn with reverence to the page? Birdseye scholar of the frozen fish, What would he make of the sole, clean, clear Leap of the salmon that has disappeared? To be, yes!--whether they like it or not! But not to last when leap and water are forgotten, A plank of standard pinkness in the dish.
They also live Who swerve and vanish in the river.
