    Whenever a snowflake leaves the sky,
It turns and turns to say “Good-by!
Good-by, dear clouds, so cool and gray!”
Then lightly travels on its way.
          Snowflakes.
2
    But when a snowflake, brave and meek,
Lights on a rosy maiden’s cheek,
It starts—“How warm and soft the day!”
“’T is summer!” and it melts away.
          Snowflakes.

    Life is a mystery as deep as ever death can be;
Yet oh, how dear it is to us, this life we live and see!
          The two Mysteries.
4
        But I believe that God is overhead
And as life is to the living, so death is to the dead.
          The two Mysteries.
