Another poem I enjoyed today.

I make no apology for posting poetry people, and today I'd like to share one of Henry Longfellow's poems with you.

Longfellow was one of the great American poets- (by far the greatest in my opinion was Walt Whitman who's work I would commend to you)-who lived between 1807-1882. He had a sad adult life, both of his wives dying tragically.

Anyhow, I post this poem because its -2*c here in Kings Heath & it feels like snow!


Out of the bosom of the Air,

Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,

Over the woodlands brown and bare

Over the harvest-fields forsaken,

Silent and soft and slow

Descends the snow.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
