Amid the Falling Snow

We've had the most amazing amount of snow today... and its still coming down! I love it when it snows. Everything is so peaceful and quiet and it seems like the whole world is blanketed in white.

This is one of my favorite songs to play on snowy days such as this one.

And some of my favorite images









The Snow
by Emily Dickinson

It sifts from leaden sieves,
It powders all the wood,
It fills with alabaster wool
The wrinkles of the road.

It makes an even face
Of mountain and of plain, --
Unbroken forehead from the east
Unto the east again.

It reaches to the fence,
It wraps it, rail by rail,
Till it is lost in fleeces;
It flings a crystal veil

On stump and stack and stem, --
The summer's empty room,
Acres of seams where harvests were,
Recordless, but for them.

It ruffles wrists of posts,
As ankles of a queen, --
Then stills its artisans like ghosts,
Denying they have been.



Have a Lovely Wednesday!

A Whole Lotta Love,
Adrienne

Very good observations. Maybe adding some pictures is likely to make the blog post more intriguing.
