A dappled rain-imminent day – the sky moved in patches, and at times the sun caught the open spaces and lit up the earth with pale light –

Evening to Three Trees Territory to sketch – cool breeze out of south – remote call of bobwhite – sky a great pattern – rainbow around the sun which was a filmy glow in a grey & yellow sky

Wheat has become yellow. My mind feeds on the poetry of past events –

Night black & windy rain –

Charles E Burchfield, July 7, 1915
