"Astonishing changes present themselves to our view
in the kingdom of Nature."
Yesterday, the blustery winds brought with them
the first snow. Big flakes, mixed with rain, fell to
the ground creating, only for a brief moment,
a world of white.
And another first was the heavy frost that blanketed
the landscape overnight. Such a beautiful vision, that
I could not resist sharing a glimpse...
"Out of the bosom of the Air,
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare.
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent and soft and slow
Descends the snow."
