THE CALENDAR - PART THREE
I knew when Winter swirled
Not by the whitened world
Or silver skeins in the lanes
Its patterns on window-panes
But because there were transfer-sheets
By the bottles of spice and sweets
In the shops in two little streets.

These days, for heavy snow to fall in the South, is a rare occurrence. This was the wintery scene waiting to greet us on Monday morning (02/02/09) after the night before. The snow has now thawed and it's raining.
I wonder whether we will have more snow?
