The Sunday porch: South Dakota

South Dakota, 1940, J. Vachon, Library of CongressPierre, South Dakota, 1940, by John Vachon, via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

— Christina Rossetti, from “In the bleak midwinter
