Lovely descriptions of things in a snowstorm. I especially like these parts: Hiding difference, making unevenness even, Into angles and crevices softly drifting and sailing (and) They gathered up the crystal manna to freeze Their tongues with tasting, their hands with snowballing

Mind blowing narration of the snow fall at London through out night and it's impact on normal life on the dawn that followed with rise of a pale Sun and the brightness reflected by the while expanse due to Sun rays falling on the snow. Just loved the poem and it's fantastic flow. Thanks for sharing.
