See the flakes dancing in the air-
White, fluffy, like cotton candy
Look around – they’re everywhere.
Floating slowly they hit the ground
Squishing as they hit their landing
They do it all without making a sound.
Now, run and build a snowman – quick!
Don’t wait for later in the day
Hurry, do it, lickity-split.
Or the snow might melt away.
So, go outside, now, run and play!Julie Larios from The Drift Record shares a poem called The Doctor Says, "He Has Meningitis”.

I tried to write a poem for my sister's birthday, but given that I didn't finish my grades until 2 am on Friday, I had a lot of trouble focusing on writing. I'll keep at it and post something soon.
