A dappled sky, silver sun – wind out of SW, is it the wind or the Equinox? Windy poplars against yellow & white dapple rifts, robins sing –

Windy fresh sunlit noon – oily mud – objects vibrate in space – nothing is distinctly static – grass is green & RV & has a brassy appearance - ; in some places greening grass contrasts with RV mud – Sky forms in great white bow shaped clouds extending from one corner to another –

A haze vibration over the ground –

Evening to Threes Trees – Rain gloom gathering – Songs of robins-

Charles E. Burchfield, March 20, 1917
