An experiment with spoken word. The lyrics are an excerpt from a 1863 poem called "The First Snow".


I love to watch the first soft snow,
As it slowly saileth down,
Purer and whiter than the pearls
That grace a monarch's crown;
Though winter wears a freezing look
And many a surly frown.
It lighteth like the feathery down
Upon the naked trees,
And on the pale and withered flowers
That swing in every breeze;
And they are clothhed in such bright robes
As summer never sees.
It bringeth pleasant memories -
The falling, falling snow -
Of neighing steeds, and jingling bells,
In the happy long ago,
When hopes were bright, and health was good,
And the spirits were not low.
