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.
