what to do with all this snow?

A snowman is love 
      and laughter all rolled up into one.

 THE SNOW had begun in the gloaming,
And busily all the night
Had been heaping field and highway
With a silence deep and white.

Every pine and fir and hemlock
Wore ermine too dear for an earl,
And the poorest twig on the elm-tree
Was ridged inch deep with pearl.

-James Russell Lowell
The First Snow-Fall
