Charles E. Burchfield, Journals September 30, 1914

Monday, September 30, 2019

 

Hazy sun-shafted morning.  Blue sky made cooler by loose, fast dissolving clouds.  No frost.

A warmy (sic) blue & white September day.  Sky deep clear blue, the crispness of which is reflected in the feet-crackled leaves.

A rainbow sunset.  Air full of delicate colors.  East sky is pink and blue; lemon moon. Tree-coloring has ceased momentarily. The cricket chorus is feebly ­reviving.

There is no discord between me and the world now.

Night wonderful. Moon circled with a beautiful rainbow. Moonsparkled poplar trees. As I get in bed I sit on edge & look out of window.  All trees in moonstorm haze, a glitter with silver-glint.

Charles E. Burchfield, Sept 30, 1914
