monday verse: in the bleak midwinter

winter, north yorkshire
winter tree, north yorkshire

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

from In The Bleak Midwinter by Christina Rossetti

A wintry landscape for my last Monday Verse. We had a couple of really cold, snowy winters whilst we were living in Yorkshire, and this is one of my favourite photos from that time.
