Winter walks through an open gate

"Some, too fragile for winter winds
The thoughtful grave encloses --
Tenderly tucking them in from frost
Before their feet are cold."

(E. Dickinson in Some, too fragile ....)

A chair in snow is always sad


“… a chair is shaped for just one thing

to hold 
a soul its quick and few bendable 
hours

perhaps a king 

not to hold snow 
not to hold flowers”

(J. Hirshfield in A chair in snow)

“O snow, which sinks so light,
Brown earth is hid from sight
O soul, be thou as white as snow,
O snow, which falls so slow,
Dear earth quite warm below;
O heart, so keep thy glow
Beneath the snow.”

(C.A. Elgar-Robberts in The snow)

4 Signs in the snow

4 Signs in the snow

“O snow, in thy soft grave
Sad flow’rs the winter brave;
O heart, so sooth and save,
as does the snow.
The snow must melt, must go,
Fast, fast as water flow.
Not thus, my soul, O sow
Thy gifts to fade like snow.”

(C.A. Elgar in The snow)

For other eyes the roses; but for me
The iron gate …”
