  "Who hasn't imagined being on a sleigh going over a hill with the rut glistening from the light of the sun on the icy snow? There is the abstract quality of a winter day, a bird sailing in the sky. Sleigh Ride is—for me—the visual counterpart of Frost's 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.' They are both magical."
