Melting Snow

A Patch of Old Snow

There’s a patch of old snow in a corner
That I should have guessed
Was a blow-away paper the rain
Had brought to rest.

It is speckled with grime as if
Small print overspread it,
The news of a day I’ve forgotten —
If I ever read it.
Robert Frost

Stone wall on Frost’s farm, NH

 

“Damp atmospheres and freezing snow can give rosy complexions. You don’t have to indulge in the refinement of inflamed bronchial tubes. You don’t have to fear pneumonia, or depend on antibiotics, vapor therapy, or antihistamines. You can rely on something better than the fruit of the “knowledge of good and evil.” (Gen. 2:9)”–21st Century Science and Health
