Winter's Last Breath

I don't think we've seen the last of it yet and Tuesday is Groundhog Day better known as Candlemass - one of the Quarter Days of the old ecclesiastical calendar. It's kind of opposite Halloween - as far away from the shortest day as the equinox. So I thought you'd like to go over to Boston Literary Magazine's Winter edition and reread this poem which seems appropriate.
