Snow Sonnet

I want to learn the thousand words for snow–
Flurries into blizzards, showers, sleet–
In every tongue, from French to Navaho–
In tones, in clicks, a lexicon complete.
These pretty, tiny flakes that fall today
And whisper Winter gently in Earth’s ear–
They sing a song more softly than what may
Come heavily from later skies more drear.
Before this Winter’s over, we will see
The harsher hand of February’s ice
As swirling snows coat stone-hard ground and we
Enjoy it from within home’s paradise.
I need language for this snow I love so much,
But more, as worthy mirrors of your touch.
