The Fall
By Shan Ahmad Malik, Year 7, Sawston Village College

The snowflake fell,
Its exuberant structure glinting gently,
Catching the pale, muffled sunlight
Gliding downwards
From the hue-less, cold clouds,
Seeking refuge, attempting to
Retain its priceless beauty.
The breeze rocked it back and forth,
Knocking it into others, forcing
Them to tangle — mingle — together.
Down the flake fell,
Ever-seeking unfindable refuge
‘Til it touched its final ground.
