Reply to Snow-flakes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Confetti Sky  - A Fold

Caught; a handful of magic in mittened hand,

Softly and gently some touched my cheek,

They came to me without wave of wand,

Snowflakes seen for very first time,

Out of pale blue sky, magic in mittened hand;

Called to witness this divine confetti,

I almost swoon as they land,

Light as a feather tired of sailing,

I agree, snowflakes are little poems grand,

Written on the wind for all to see,

Happy tourist i, magic in mittened hand.

And after understanding today's prompt
A Reply To 'Caged Bird by Maya Angelou'

Bird songs to a new dawn
Stir the sleeper to rise
Like clockwork the sky erupts
Whistles thrills and rhythm

Behind thin bars a pet bird yawns
His name unknow yet surmise
The life that would interrupt
Whistles thrills and rhythm
