    April 3, 1917 -
       A cool wet morning with deep blue sky + bright sun – roofs + tree limbs glittering a haze arizes from ground Elm bloom glows orange against the sky robin songs – vivid upshooting grass with frost –
       A vivid morn – rich vibrating green grass – slick sapling gleam white – shiny poplar – cat kin scales catch the sunlight turning the tree to a sprinkle of highlights ----- A day on which brown wood sheds with yellow signs catch the eye – bleached shingles – sunlit tin cans boxes – green dotted lilac bushes – heat waves over rise in ground –

Charles E. Burchfield, April 3, 1917
