Wivenhoe Wonderland

_MG_9270

Announced by all the trumpets of the sky,
Arrives the snow, and, driving o’er the fields,

_MG_9267

Seems nowhere to alight: the whited air
Hides hills and woods, the river and the heaven,

_MG_9239

And veils the farmhouse at the garden’s end.
The steed and traveler stopped, the courier’s feet

_MG_9207

Delayed, all friends shut out, the housemates sit
Around the radiant fireplace, enclosed
In a tumultuous privacy of storm.
