Subject(s): Forests; Winter; Woods


Oh, little wood, knee-deep in snow
And hemmed in by the old fence row,
With crystal beam and frosted star,
How beautiful and still you are!
I wonder if I might intrude
Upon your lovely solitude.
Instead I only stare and stare,
There's radiant beauty everywhere.
The trees along each columned aisle
Are pyramids of silver, while
A low wind comes to shake them free
And scatter snowflakes carelessly . . .
Each silver flake a parting word
To breathe a prayer my heart has heard.

Oh, little wood, knee-deep in snow,
Just one more look before I go!
