Dec 11, 1917 -
    Cold still day –
    Pale misty yellow grey sky –
    Houses various tones of steely grey – startle white windows of frost –
    The snow creaks –
    The sun a flat white disc rolls along the South; the southern horizon is yellow –
    Sleighbells represent the human side of winter; the accidental clinking creak of wagons over the snow the abstract side.
