"London Snow" is an 1890 poem by Robert Bridges (1844-1930). In the poem, Bridges writes of a London whose grime and drudgery are briefly transformed by heavy snowfall. Drawing on the tradition of the Romantic poets, he pits the sublime power of nature against the grinding toil of the Industrial Revolution. While the snow's unifying and perfecting power is fleeting, it offers London's weary citizens a glimpse of a better world.
