Branches Big with Snow

Snow-coated branches, Green Lake park, Seattle

“Every branch big with it,
Bent every twig with it;
Every fork like a white web-foot;
Every street and pavement mute:
Some flakes have lost their way, and grope back upward when
Meeting those meandering down they turn and descend again.”
—  Thomas Hardy, from “Snow in the Suburbs”

    I’m glad you have a bit of snow to enjoy. My Wisconsin winter has been snowy since early December. Small, frequent snowfalls that were easy to keep up with. Just my kind of winter. Beautiful.

    I came to California to avoid the Northwest winter, but just look at what I am missing!

      I’m already missing the snow, too. It lasted two days and now has melted except for the disappearing remains of huge snowmen and snowballs — little piles of snow here and there.
