In The Bleak Midwinter.

When I lived with my parents I sang in the ward choir.  One of the Winter arrangements we sang was In The Bleak Midwinter.  These last few months those words have been in my head. 
In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.
It is a hymn about Christ. 
But as we see snow and ice and snow and ice, I think it perfectly describes this Winter.
I haven't seen the ground in months!
I am so looking forward to Spring.  We are still months away. But I long for it.
 Life. Color. Sky. Warmth.
May this snow and ice melt quickly and bring green grass and beautiful Spring.
