Feel this...

I was blog-hopping when I ran into this poem quoted on my friend Ashutosh's blog,
There are strange and mysterious sounds
When the winds of winter blow,
The long nights are crystal clear and cold,
And the fields and meadows are covered with snow.
The stars are frosty against the sky,
And the wind's whistle is shrill,
As the snow blows against the house
And drifts against the hill.
Yet, I like to see during the winter
A white carpet on the ground,
To plod aimlessly in the deep snow,
where deer tracks abound.
I like to feel the stillness
Of a crisp winter's night,
Watching a full moon rise over the horizon,
Exposing a winter wonderland beautiful and bright.
- Joseph Renaldi
What makes these lines magical is how you feel when you read it. The essence of any reading is getting into the place referred, staying there for a moment or two, feeling the emotions and the train of thoughts that run through your mind, and then coming back to present tense.
BTW 2006 is just around the best wishes to everyone for the next 365 days....
