The Snow Fall


"The Snow Fall" is the final movement in Miriam Gideon's song cycle Spirit Above the Dust.

The Snow Fall
by Archibald MacLeish

Quietness clings to the air.
Quietness gathers the bell
To a great distance.
This is the snow.
This is the slow
The snow
It encloses us.
Time in the snow is alone:
Time in the snow is at last,
Is past.
