too late, too late . . .

to admire the fresh snow but the pattern of footprints is equally fascinating . . .
and there have been and, will be, plenty of posts past and present . . .

Purcell’s Cold Genius ———–
What power art thou, who from below
Hast made me rise unwillingly and slow
From beds of everlasting snow
See’st thou not ( how stiff )2) and wondrous old
Far unfit to bear the bitter cold,
I ( can scarcely move or draw my breath )2)
Let me, let me freeze again to death.3) – – – — from King Arthur.
And brilliantly performed: Klaus Nomi. No apologies for using it again.
