     Nov. 7, 1917 -
    Pale far away grey morning – Earth + Sky one – The sky is blueish(sic) grey at bottom but lighter warmer grey above -
    At noon the tremendous snow gloom hangs over the earth – black trees bases look startled at the snowy ground (the sky being dark, the snow is a source of light)  Houses appear, as if they thought “What is the terrific thing that is about to happen?” – Foundry Hill specters   The House of the Old Lady has white fishy eyes –

    The Zenith looms like a great oval light –
