Nov 8, 1917 Con

     fly up from the turf, but instead, far to the East thru the dense layers of white frost, haze comes the low whistle of a train –

     On the walk to work – house roofs in shadow are purple while sky is watery cerulean – Sunlit houses of whatever local color are lighter than sky –

     On hill above factories – to sound yellow haze blends land to sky – to west a huge bank of dark smoke, against it the frosted trees gleam white – beautiful lacework –
