Snow on Snow

In the bleak mid-winter
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter
Long ago.

From In the Bleak Midwinter by Christina Rosetti

Christina Rossetti is one of those poets whom I forget I like, until I read something like this. How thankful I am to see that lovely picture from the comfort of my living room, and not from the business end of a handcart!
