I kissed you in a snowstorm
last night, a lot like a scene
I recall from Snow Falling on Cedars.
Your cheeks red, flushed,
you held my name in your coat.
— Dave Malone, from Under the Sycamore

One of my faves from Dave. (Who writes the most marvelous love poems :).
I can see red cheeks through the falling snow. And that last line. <3
