In Southwestern Ohio, we’ve been receiving consistent doses of snow this month. The totals have not been overly impressive (usually 1-4 inches per storm), but the snow has hit a rhythm with the morning and afternoon rush hours–causing some interesting commutes. And it has been bone chilling cold (for this part of Ohio anyway–as I’m sure this blog has readers from further up north).
Instead of spending an entire blog post complaining, I thought I’d link to some poems available online that deal with the cold. So here you go.
* “Cold Poem,” by Mary Oliver
* “Good-by and Keep Cold,” by Robert Frost
* A couple snow poems, also by Frost
* “Snow Day,” by Billy Collins
