Life in Christian County, Kentucky...
There are some trees I really enjoy seeing without their leaves in the winter. This is one of them.
The scarlet robe of autumn
Renounced and put away,
The mystic Earth is fairer still, --
A Puritan in gray.
The spirit of the winter,
How tender, how austere!
Yet all the ardor of the spring
And summer's dream are here.
From "Winter Twilight" by Bliss Carman
