A snell wind bites ears and noses,
Eastern chill numbs fingertips
but Oh what delight the glow
of returning sun has brought ,
replacing late-lingered gloom
on winter faces with smiles.
Five unbroken days of golden light
transforms blue to bliss.

Snell is a Scottish word meaning keen, sharp or severe.
