The snow bad begun in the gloaming : ,
And busily all the night
Had been heaping field and highway
With a silenoe deep and white.
Every pine and fir and hemlock
Wore ermine too dear for an earl ,
And the poorest twig on the elm tree
Was ridged inch deep with pearl.
From iheds new-roofed with Carrara
Game Chanticleer' * muffled crow ;
Tbe stiff rails were softened to swan's
And itill fluttered down the mow.
I stood and watched by the window
The nolieleai work of the sky ,
And the sudden flunfes of snowbird ) ,
Like brown loaves whirling by.
I thought of a mound in sweet Auburn ,
Whore u little headstone stood ;
Hot * the fUkei were folding it Kently ,
As did robins the babe * in the wood.
Up spoke nur own little Mabel ,
Saying : "Father , who makes it snow ! "
And I told nf the good Allfatbor
Who cares for u hire below.
Again I looked at tbo snow-fall ,
And thought of the laden sky
That arched o'er our first great sorrow ,
When that mound woe heaped so high.
I remembered the gradual patience
That fell from that cloud like "now ,
Flake by flake , haallug and biding
The scar of m deep-plunged woe.
And again to the child I whispered :
"Tlieauow that buiheth all ,
Darling , the merciful Father
Alone c n uia e it fall.
Then , with eyes that saw not , I kissed her ;
And she , kissing bask , could not kuow
That my kits wai given to her sister ,
Folded close undt r deepened snow.
