Nov 7, 1917 -

     Grey smoky November –

     a cool morning – yellow + ochre rifts in sky that sweeps from N.W. at times silver sun in low S.E.  Heavy yellow haze –

                   Nov 8, 1917 –

     I awoke between midnight and dawn; the waning moon hung high in the eastern sky   it seemed like a great white eye; in the grey dusk of the dull moon – light I could see frost in the trees –

     Dawn – Sweeping cloud rays radiate from SE, sky intense yellow – ground houses, trees almost a monotone of rich blue from heavy fresh –

Sun like molten silver   The whole SE a glare of white strange that no singing was
