I've certainly seen that poem a zillion times in my life, to the point where I often don't even really hear or see it, but today for some reason, it just touched me. Maybe it was the picture of the man w/his horse and sleigh that made the difference.

And this

The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
made me hear so clearly the soft, deep silence that you only hear in woods while it's snowing. I could almost feel the snow on my face and the cold of the air as I breathed in.

As I say, I've seen the poem a zillion times, but today it touched me...
