    A beautifully written poem, I loved these lines the most for their imaginative freshness


    It gives the dead another winding sheet,
    It buries all the roofs until the smoke
    Seems like a soul that from its clay has broke.

    Even the first line seems to invite the reader in warm tucked up in bed, with the line 'The Great soft downy snow storm like a cloak' or perhaps, it is the eternal invitation to go out and explore the new winter white changes coming in an Autumn storm? (Report) Reply

    Every sound
    It hushes to the footstep of a nun.

    beautifully descriptive and full of atmosphere, if a little predictable by todays standards but i do agree with veeraiyah the last line just lifts the whole piece (Report) Reply
