Aesthetic Realism Online Library Poetry by Rebecca Fein


    “The poetic relation of snow and consciousness made for the poem Fresh Falling Snow.”

—Eli Siegel
From Preface to Personal & Impersonal


    Fresh Falling Snow

    How beautiful a thing is the snow,
    It falls in its mysterious fashion
    And not like disappearing rain;
    Covers pavement softly so that
    When one walks, the wonderless, hard city streets
         are no longer there.
    Instead one steps into whiteness and depth in
         front of one.
    A welcome visitation,
    Transforming for a while, the city, its people, their work,
             their understanding.
