Snow at Dusk



The snow came
In drifts from the lake
And a world that was white
Was made even whiter.

Half of an elm in drapings of
Hoar and its deep gleam at dusk
A two-faced prince.

This photo and the last line of the poem together made me gasp aloud.

Rebekah,

That tableau took my breath away too when I was out on a walk -after yet another snowfall.
