Oh! Snow!

Image from the Ephemeral New York blog.

OH!

The snow! the beautiful snow!
Falling eider as down on bough,
Waking the poet’s musical gush,
Filling the street with villainous slush,
Sliding from roofs on heads below,
Oh, the snow, the beautiful snow!
Drifting,
Sifting,
Whirling,
Hurling,
Rasping the nose to a ruddly glow,
Rasping the temper equally so,
Oh!
The beautiful, beautiful, beautiful snow!

Seventeen verses omitted.

Newport Daily News (Newport, Rhode Island) Feb 6, 1879
