Ghosts Of Fallen Leaves

Ghosts Of Fallen Leaves

Are ye the ghosts of fallen leaves,
O flakes of snow,
For which, through naked trees, the winds
A-mourning go?
Or are ye angels, bearing home
The host unseen
Of truant spirits, to be clad
Again in green?

Savor Belonging To Yourself

Savor Belonging To Yourself

There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you…. In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself.

Winter LandScape

Winter LandScape

He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter…. In winter the stars seem to have rekindled their fires, the moon achieves a fuller triumph, and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity.

Warm Light

Warm Light

My old grandmother always used to say, Summer friends will melt away like summer snows, but winter friends are friends forever.

“Warm light leaking out of the portal surrounded by harsh winter.”
