"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    Technologies can help being on top of things by their several applications; for instance, by satellite imagery, some countries were enabled to be on top of monitoring how their rain forests within their borders were shrinking by farming and logging.
    Certainly, this way was going to be more effective than simply keeping a sentry on watch duty on top of a towering tree, although this would be another way of being on top of something.
