For You Dear Claudia *S*

The inspiration for this came from one of my favorite poems by Robert Frost called "Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening"
I don't think this is quite what Frost envisioned when he wrote the poem, but I'm sure he wouldn't mind the artistic license :o)....and I think I'd give my right arm for a touch of Winter right now! ....well, maybe more than a touch....a blustering blizzard would be nice LOL
Here's a youtube if you're interested :
And here's the poem :
"Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening"
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."
~ Robert Frost

The snow has not yet fallen on my roof. Only ashes from a great fire. My feet sometimes remember the dull disappearance that is frostbite setting in and my eyes glaze a bit from shock. I fell from the horse, a grey mare, in heat for her fleeting lover just let out of the barn. The story is a plan I have kept. Now in summer, I await the end of labor and the dismissal of this Communist labor theory of values and work ethic that has fouhgt over me.

One must zoom in to really get the impact of this one - so many delicate touches, from the snowy hint of wings to the cosmic sky; superb bit here!

Yes this is a really poetic scene and very lovely it is. I can understand why you long for winter, with that heat you are having. Right now it looks more like autumn after the stormy weather it has been here. I wish I could share some of our cool days with you.
