Cold com­forts

“So with the stretch of the white road be­fore me, Shin­ing snow crys­tals rain­bowed by the sun, Fields that are white, stained with long, cool, blue shad­ows, Strong with the strength of my horse as we run. Joy in the touch of the wind and the sun­light! Joy! With the vig­or­ous earth I am one.” --- Amy Low­ell, “A Win­ter Ride”
