ďOut of the bosom of the air, out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,

Over the woodlands brown and bare, over the harvest-fields forsaken,

Silent, and soft, and slow, descends the snow.Ē

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

They had cascaded down all night

These lovely snowflakes from on high

Little Jack seemed very eager for a walk

So he and I, were out of our door, by five

What a truly marvelous feeling as we walked on

Soft white snow, soon crunching beneath our feet

A soothing, cloud-like presence, as we gazed about

And such heavenly silence, not another soul did we meet

I love early morning walks, before the world awakens

And I especially love them after an entire night of snow

This gift from the clouds covered all, in wondrous white

Little Jack and I were in heaven, and onward did we go

He delighted in each and every heavenly smell he came upon

I delighted in the heavenly scenery and in the heavenly silence

What a marvelous contrast, to our hectic, bustling, noisy world

This other world experience, for the both of us, was heaven sent

We walked on and on both delighting in our visit to this heavenly realm

And I soon thanked God for each of Earthís four seasons as we strolled

I could never live anywhere on Earth, that did not contain all four of them

This early morning walk, in this heavenly winter realm, had soothed my soul

They had cascaded down all night,

These lovely snowflakes from on high;

Little Jack seemed very eager for a walk,

So he and I, walked out of our door, by five.

When it snows my dogs look out the door and seem to say to me, "Are you kidding?" When they finally are talked into going out they seem to enjoy it.

BY 5 ???????????? But it's pitch black!!! Patrick and I seem to be on the same hymnsheet as I, too, was wondering about little Jack's feet... Willow's pads always freeze up and get clogged with iceballs... What do you recommend? But, all joking apart, Dad, I DO know what you mean... There's a wonder and an awe that infiltrates when the world is as fresh and virgin as it is after snow and we the only witnesses. Such a "born again" feeling with this kind of fresh, wide open space. Walk on! :)) xx

There is great beauty in that first glimpse of the day after a night of freshly falling snow. Just a perfect blanket of white, undisturbed by the footprints of man..... and if all you ever did was look at it and take nice walks in it, I'd be in complete agreement with you. Unfortunately, Iíll have to make do by taking my walks through the paths of our local parks and try to make myself content by looking at the beautiful flowers and hundreds of species of lushly growing green things, knowing that Iíll never lift another shovel full of snow, or drive on it, or scrape it off my car again. Somehow, Iíll muddle through, but I sure do miss it. YEAH, RIGHT!!! Like I'd miss a toothache.

Nice poem Ed, I much prefer reading about snow as opposed to living with it. Thanks Dick
