Snow in Madrid
by Joy Davidman

Softly, so casual,
Lovely, so light, so light,
The cruel sky lets fall
Something one does not fight.
How tenderly to crown
The brutal year
The clouds send something down
That one need not fear.
Men before perishing
See with unwounded eye
For once a gentle thing
Fall from the sky.

Her name was Joy Davidman? Just wondering because wasn't it Joy Gresham in Shadowlands who quoted it? Was Davidman her maiden name?

yupe, Davidman was her maiden name and I'm assuming it was during this time in her life that she wrote it
