We have been having unusually cold weather here in Western North Carolina this winter. When it is snow it looks so pretty! But our snow is long gone and what we have instead is ICE. The words that keep running through my head this week are those penned by Christina Rosetti and first published in 1872. Her poem, set to music by Gustav Holst in 1906, is the Christmas carol we know as "In the Bleak Midwinter."
