Gently Falling

by Emma Louise Clapp

Softly from the sky is falling
Snowflakes white as lilies fair;
Gently to each other calling
As they float down through the air.

Softly, softly, oh so softly!
Do they come from dizzy heights;
Gently, gently, oh, so gently!
Do they lay a blanket white.

Over all the many housetops,
Over shrubs and tall, tall trees,
Over hills and field and meadows,
Hiding stones and restless leaves.
