It's All Been (John) Donne Before

Normally, snow is quiet stuff. Some people say they can hear it fall, but they're the same people that claim to be able to hear the Northern Lights.
When it gets cold enough, though, snow crunches underfoot and chunks of it sound like a bell ringing when they're disturbed. Garrison Keillor has said that winter can be a relief because you know the weather is trying to kill you and so, then, you know too, for whom the snow tolls.
