                       maybe sometime
                       snowflakes
                       that fall for the
                       first time on
                       her newlytongue

                       head tilted back
                       with stargaze
                       wonder,
                       eyes wide with
                       amazement as
                       winterwonderflakes
                       fall on rosy cheeks

This poem was previously published in the literary magazine Changes of Season.



larry bauer makes his home in Helena, Montana, with an incredible fiction writer and two beautiful children. Sandra Alcosser, Montana’s first Poet Laureate, invited him to read at the opening of Montana’s 2007 legislative session. As well, FootHills Publishing has released his first volume of poems, health insurance and other matters of death, and his second: family and other seasons of change. His poetry and short stories have also appeared in Literary Mama, Poemeleon, Colors, Wild Roses in Spring, and many others. The gift of marriage and fatherhood is almost beyond poetic, but occasionally he tries to capture it on paper.
