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!

Name that poem!

Name that poem! Several years ago I came across a poem on a website that collected a lot of 'classic' English language poems, the sort of stuff you'd find in a Norton anthology. This one was written by a woman, and it was about thinking of someone who was separated by distance. I think there was some mention of 'cold wine' and 'crisp toast'. It was very modern and conversational, so it's definitely not from Browning, Millay, etc.
