The Snowflake

Young love is pure - like snow when fallen new -
and always I’ll recall one wondrous day!
Through dawn, soft powder fell; clouds lingered grey
until mid-morning. Splendid sun shone through
the gloom, and sky turned periwinkle blue!
Excited, we ran laughing, out to play
in snow, which all around us brightly lay.
But never did I guess what would ensue. . .

You chased me, until breathless, we both dropped
onto a blanket of sheer white, and then
a snowflake touched my mouth. Your fingertips
began to trace its shape, until you stopped. . .
Your gaze became intense, and that is when
you bent to kiss the snowflake from my lips.

OR Horses & Snowflakes

    To me, the rhyme scheme in an Italian Sonnet is by far the most difficult yet you seem to do it with ease...Would love to know how you 'set up' this type of rhyming or if you are so familiar with it that you know it by heart? The last line was PERFECT and the whole sonnet describes young, innocent love to a TEE...Congratulations my friend! - Tim
