Nov.

It is black into the parlor
 _____

Morning of wind outside the shuttered windows –
 _____

Morning – in the North window a cold white light reminds of Christmas in the east window a feeling of summer _____

Walk in A.M. – blinding sunlight – vivid emerald sky high cold wind – pearly clouds – curling cerulean slits;  - song of the brook – ironwood – the sumac – the Country Church bell – and later the church itself a white ghost in the white graveyard
   ____
The snowstorm – the day darkens – the pale light coming into the gloom of the rain – the steady down – down – down – pouring of snow
