Now (midnight) the roofs are all covered with frost, tall white smoke goes up from one chimney into the vast moonlit sky; even shadows are silvery — the silence is profound — What a wonderful thing that an expected season never fails us — this midwinter Spring, so fleeting and elusive that we fear another year will not bring it — yet it always comes.
Charles E. Burchfield, December 3, 1919
