Ice Storm

All things that go deep enough
Into rain and cold
Take on, before they break down,
A shining in every part.

-- from James Dickey's "The Ice Skin"

One must have a mind of winter...
not to think / Of any misery in the sound of the wind...
For the listener, who listens in the snow,
And, nothing himself, beholds
Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.

-- from Wallace Stevens's "The Snow Man"
