"Blizzard" by William Carlos Williams:
Snow:years of anger followinghours that float idly downthe blizzarddrifts its weightdeeper and deeper for three daysor sixty years, eh? Thenthe sun! a clutter ofyellow and blue flakesHairy looking trees stand outin long alleysover a wild solitude.The man turns and therehis solitary track stretched outupon the world.
