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.
