Gladys Taber Says It Best
"The winter sun burns her white fire along
the snow-deep meadows."
"Ice glitters on the cold side of the branches,
melts and falls with soft sound."
dark winter wind,
heavy blowing snow."
"But snug warmth within,
and in early mornings,
the pale apricot tinge on the snow,
more beautiful than one could dream of."
"Dark comes early these days.
It changes the whole rhythm of life
in the country.
Supper is early, by the applewood fire."
"The white night outside is beautiful
and vast as the ocean."
[All words above by my beloved Gladys Taber,
Connecticut countrywoman, in the January 1954
issue of Ladies Home Journal.]
