“Late Snow” by J.C. Squire

Late Snow

The heavy train through the dim country went rolling,
Interminably passing misty snow-covered plough-land
That merged in the snowy sky; came turning
       meadows, fences,
Came gullies and passed, and ice-coloured streams
       under frozen bridges.

Across the travelling landscape evenly drooped and
The telegraph wires, thick ropes of snow in the wind-
       less air;
