Ahh, not so fast, boyo. It's the woolen "scarf" that "catches" the snowflakes (singular subject + singular verb form = agreement). The "wistful crytals" and "polar sobs" are piled-up descriptions of the snowflakes themselves, and the sentence with scarf begins halfway through the line and then bends around to the next one. On the other hand, I do deliberately bend and break grammatical rules all the time for effect in poems. Goes with the territory. It's one of the reasons why I like it. Atticus the Unruly
