"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

    I dropped her off at college and went to see her tutor at a drop in session, only to learn she had dropped out the week before.

    !Note - drop off can also mean to let someone out of a vehicle at a particular place.

    I often drop in on my grandfather. He is very old and he sometimes drops off while he is listening to me.

    I thought for a while to drop in for a seminar that was arranged by my organization but, then, I dropped out the idea because it was too late for me and I drop off the office.
