Vale of Grief




"Every winter, when the great sun has turned his face away, the earth goes down into a vale of grief, and fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables, leaving her wedding-garlands to decay -- then leaps in spring to his returning kisses.

Mary, I'm glad you are not a forest ranger or a jockey, otherwise I don't think you'd be writing this beautiful blog. Thank you for the verse, the photos, and happy holidays!
