Washington D.C. awoke to a light layer of snow this morning, the first in a long time. When in moderation, snowy days are some of my favorite weather.
Here is a poem by Meng Jiao (751-814):
“Distant View of the Luo Bridge”
Beneath the Tian Jin Bridge the ice
has just begun to show;
In Luo Yang City’s empty streets
no traveler will go;
Willows and elms are bare of leaves,
pavilions lie unused;
But in the bright moon brilliantly
I see Mount Song’s far snow.
