IN THE DEEP WHITE SNOW, by            
First Line: They heard my footsteps faint and low
Last Line: By the slim white trees.
Subject(s): Snow


They heard my footsteps faint and low,
And three deer wheeled in the forest breeze,
In the deep white snow
By the slim, white trees.
They stood like nymphs on a Grecian frieze.
Or like three lilies in a row
By the slim white trees
In the deep white snow,
With the eyes of the Child born long ago --
And I, a sinner, fell on my knees
In the deep white snow,
By the slim white trees.
