Snow, Suddenly

On Sunday evening Derbyshire was blanketed in the white stuff, and there's still some left on high ground. Snowballs and /or tricky driving conditions! It's a good subject for poems, here's a couple: Snow by Louis Macneice ('World is crazier and more of it than we think') and Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost ('And miles to go before I sleep').

This photo was taken near Buxton by Chris Barrow.

Lovely surprise/illumination in the last line of the Louis Macneice poem for this rather naive reader. Thank you for giving me the poem.

Me and my friend Marit have put this snowy Robert Frost poem to music.
You can find it on our myspace, it should be the first song...
