Snow Flakes

Snow Flakes

by Emily Dickenson

I counted till they danced so
Their slippers leaped the town,
And then I took a pencil
To note the rebels down.
And then they grew so jolly
I did resign the prig,
And ten of my once stately toes
Are marshalled for a jig!


  1. My son called this morning to say he got another foot of snow last night in Chewelah...
    We have steady rain...

  2. Ahh...welcome snowflakes I see. Hope that you get to take a walk, at the very least, in them. (Hope that they stay for a while, too. Ours keep washing away.)

  3. That was a nice poem by Emily, La Tea Dah. Did you know I have toured her house in Amherst, Massachusetts? So fascinating....especially to be in the bedroom where she lowered the basket of goodies from the window for the neighborhood children.

    I hadn't read that poem and liked it. She was quite unique, don't you think? Take care and have a wonderful Friday. Susan

  4. There is something so special about having snow at Christmas. How lovely to see your snow.

  5. Lovely poem and snowy scenes.

  6. Such breathtaking photos! Happy Soltice!

  7. Looks like winter has definitely settled in where you are. It's been raining off and on for a couple of days here. I'm on winter break now! So happy to have time to do all the things I keep putting off. Happy holidays to you and yours, Tammy
