Cast by the hands of the Maker above
Kissed by the lips that gave us all love
Breathed by the fire that gave us all life
Is filled in the belly of my beautiful wife

Held safe in the hands of the Cradler’s arm
Taken at times and rescued from harm
Hand in the air offered in surety
Taken, unseen, felt is the purity    

Cast by the hands of the Maker above
Kissed by the lips that gave us all love
Breathed by the crystals that gave us all sight
Filled in the sky with this blinding of light

Watched by his parents, safe in the yard
Baby's first snow, walking is hard
He’s innocent, beautiful, lovely and young
Kissed is the gift on his giggly tongue

Oh a childs first snow flake on their tongue...I can hear his laughter..what a lovely sound and vision you have given me today.

--------------
You got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
and show the world all the love in your heart
Then people are gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That your beautiful as you feel.~~~ Carol King

Walt, this one is so sensual. No, not sexual, but dealing with the senses, i.e. cold, touch of flakes, brisk wind through downy hair, curious thoughts as to what this cold, white stuff is, security found in parentals close by, exploring the unknown (the first step in a lifetime of discovery)...sensual.

It reminds me of my first snow, one of the rare times it snowed in west Texas, back in 72. It's made all the more special, for that is my first memory I remember, if that makes any sense. Bundled up in a black and red snow-suit, barely able to move my arms and legs, marveling at this odd rain that moved so slowly, like feathers. Walt, this one surprised me, and took me back...way back.

For that, I thank you.

Alicat, who still loves playing in the snow.

Pretty Picture!

I like the use of Maker and Cradler.  Your flow and rhythm is very smooth.
