from Ode to Common Things

Pablo Neruda's poetry seems especially fitting today, it is 6 degrees below zero this morning. Here is an excerpt:

So this is the moral of my ode:
beauty is beauty
twice over
and good things are doubly
good
when you're talking about a pair of wool
socks
in the dead of winter.

taken from Odes to Common Things
