Snow White Christmas Eve

The First Snow-Fall
The snow had begun in the gloaming,

And busily all the night
Had been heaping field and highway
With a silence deep and white.
Every pine and fir and hemlock
Wore ermine too dear for an earl,
And the poorest twig on the elm-tree
Was ridged inch deep with pearl.

~ James Russell Lowell
