Fragments
“Soft Through the Silent Air”
 
December 18, 1847.

SOFT through the silent air descend the feathery snow-flakes;
White are the distant hills, white are the neighboring fields;
Only the marshes are brown, and the river rolling among them
Weareth the leaden hue seen in the eyes of the blind.
