One must have a mind of winter

I’ve started setting the Wallace Stevens poem The Snow Man for tenor and piano. Here’s a draft of the first 1 and 2/3 stanzae. The accomapniment is a 13-half-note pattern, varied at the close of the first stanza, and transposed for the second. I likely won’t leave it that dull rhythmically, right now I want to finish the text setting before I elaborate the support.
