february's frozen woods (toast to winter series)

how blessed
am i
to live by the woods
in winter

* "Come when the rains
Have glazed the snow and clothed the trees with ice,
While the slant sun of February pours
Into the bowers a flood of light. Approach!
The incrusted surface shall upbear thy steps
And the broad arching portals of the grove
Welcome thy entering."
          - William Cullen Bryant, A Winter Piece
