Winter Landscape, Oil on Canvas, Rockwell Kent, 1909

On the other side of the ridge,
where it's still daylight
and tense, stratus clouds travel
to the Great Salt Lake.
Who wouldn't ask them
to stay a little long so we
could keep watching thin snow
on the slope and that lost
caravan of trees upon it?
We'll cross that rise too but not
before dark. We'll pitch tents
and start cook fires on this plain
and sleep well tonight.
