Terrific wind in the Black night – A brilliant sun morning with immense cerulean sky spaces – Later loose grey misty layer clouds and bullet or tapioca snow – Visions of dk houses against startling white horizons – forms vivid combinations with wet ground – diff kinds of grass – green – the ground seems to recede + come forward – a blue – haze on it – lt. Spaces come in the sky as from an unearthly source – edges of things around it quaver with blue atmosphere – A clear elysian sunset

 A vivid white morning myriad highlights on trees – wet blinding roofs frost on grass melting – Trees sunlit (sun to one side) a rich RV – O –
Songsparrows - whitefaced houses far to west –
Noon – rich clear air white windy clouds – vivid vibration of sunlight on green grass + dead turf – 

Charles E. Burchfield, March 29, 1917
