Moon of Ice

How beautiful thy frosty morn, 
When brilliants gem each      
    feathery thorn!

How fair thy cloudless noon!

And through the leafless trees,
     at night,
With more than summer's 
     soften'd light,
Shines thy resplendent moon!
          (Bernard Barton)

(Moon of Ice is the Celtic name for the February full moon usually known as the Full Snow Moon.)
