Snow Walkers

"What a wild Winter sound,-
wild and weird, 
up among the ghostly hills...
I get up in the middle of the night to hear it.
It is refreshing to the ear,
and one delights to know that such wild creatures
are among us.
At this season
Nature makes the most of every throb of life 
that can withstand her severity."
~John Burroughs
The Snow Walkers, 1866
