Snow-Bound, by the American poet John Greenleaf Whittier, transports the reader to a blustery and bucolic winter scene in 19th-century New England. Throughout the poem, Whittier fondly recalls life on his family’s farmstead and the many duties and joys that came each winter. The poem’s images of snowy fields, cozy hearths, and the promise of spring will resound in the hearts of readers always.
