“Gumavot gisu gima ir golota”

Sovermia’s skiers and outdoor enthusiasts welcome the first significant snowfall today, the weather turning toward true winter late last night and dropping several centimeters by morning.

Gumavot gisu gima ir golota. “Yesterday came winter and cold,” as a line from an old Sovermian alliterative song has it. And just as true, as our poets say, “snow favors no rule” — Snigva doklinit nenei regla.

With its gifts of clarity and simplicity, may the cold season sharpen senses and soothe hearts .
