A wash of morning sunlight bathes valley farmsteads, golden light glinting gleaming back from bright breakfasted homes.

Fair, faint reminder of spring's aspiring revisit

Midwinter day has long begun and days are soon to lengthen.

Surly cattle, fall-barned, dream of long summer's riot days filled with sweet grass, broad fields, night skies.

Shaggy, shoddy, shabby and unshorn sheep huddle, exhaling communal clouds.

Heavy horses reminisce each furrow and fold, unused, unemployed, unwearied, workless.

Muse, mouse, oak and apple, all abide compulsory winter sojourn.
