Wild Nights for the Full Moon

In February I tried to take a photo of the full moon but it was so cold that my breath kept fogging the photographs. I then decided to use this Emily Dickinson poem with one of them. Because after all — steamy breath means wild nights. I post it for Sunday's Full Pink Moon. By the way, the February full moon is the Full Snow Moon:
Since the heaviest snow usually falls during this month, native tribes of the north and east most often called February's full Moon the Full Snow Moon. Some tribes also referred to this Moon as the Full Hunger Moon, since harsh weather conditions in their areas made hunting very difficult.
