Walking in a Winter Wonderland…”It sifts from Leaden Sleeves”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABeechwood Forest December 10, 10am

and the words of Emily Dickinson


It sifts from Leaden Sleeves

It sifts from Leaden Sieves, It powders all the Wood. It fills with Alabaster Wool, The Wrinkles of the Road.

It makes an even face of Mountain, and of Plain, unbroken from the East unto the East again.

It reaches to the Fence, it wraps it Rail by Rail, till it is lost in Fleeces, it deals Celestial Vail.

To Stump , and Stack, and Stem, a Summer’s empty Room, acres of Joints, where Harvests were, Recordless but for them.

It ruffles wrists of Posts, As Ankles of a Queen, Then stills its Artisans like Ghosts, Denying they have been.
