My Cart 


Frank Asch


If sunlight fell like snowflakes,
gleaming yellow and so bright,
we could build a sunman,
we could have a sunball fight,
we could watch the sunflakes
drifting in the sky.
We could go sleighing
in the middle of July
through sundrifts and sunbanks,
we could ride a sunmobile,
and we could touch sunflakesó
I wonder how they'd feel.
From Country Pie (New York: William Morrow & Company, 1979).†

The last line could bring out even more vivid imaginings. Good one.
