Greetings, Poetry Lovers! Help me remember this poem.

Trying to find a half-remembered poem. It was something about transitory natural states, and I think it specifically mentioned the moment when rain turns to sleet or sleet turns to snow or some such. I think some kind of precipitation was the subject. And that's all I have. Thanks for anything you can offer!

This little poem by Nemerov springs to mind.

A long shot, especially because it's a pretty well-known poem, but it's a favorite of mine and sprung to mind when I read your description....

Wow Katie, nailed it right out of the gate! Thanks so much. And thanks to the rest of you too, because now I'm going to go read all those ones you mentioned too.
