A Metaphor
By Mendel Jacobson
 

Snowflakes pass me by –
Like the years of my life.
Snow flurries fall to the ground –
Like youthful expectations. 

Snowballs are molded –
Like innocent minds.
Snowmen are sluggish –
Like men of flesh and blood. 

Snowstorms bury the dirt –
Like beautiful bodies.
Snowplows uncover it –
Like moments of truth. 

Snow iced by the cold –
Like frozen hearts.
Snow melted by the sun –
Like delicate souls.

Snowhite waiting for her prince –
Like the children of Israel.
Snowledge of G-d will cover the earth –
Like the waters cover the sea.
