American poet Elinor Wylie wrote this beautiful poem in 1920. It is a gentle walk through soft snow, and the effect is as if one is walking with velvet shoes through veils of white lace. The beautiful text creates an atmosphere of tranquility, serenity, peace, and awareness of beauty. Walk with us through the quiet snow.
