Snow Flakes Fall

Oh,but can you just imagine stepping out of a cabin,
Warm from a wood stove to grab more wood
Cut from downed trees in your woods?
You pause for a moment to watch the snow falling
Listen to the whisper of flakes falling
Gently landing on the tin roof.
Only in the woods is it quiet enough
To hear snowflakes flakes land.
Back inside you throw wood into the stove
Then stand with back to stove
To warm yourself once again
And watch the snow gather at your window.

Stephen Hollen
