WINTER FROM MY WINDOW
Last night the King strode past my window. His ermine robe off-cast caresses the once stark trees and the brittle grass which autumn had orphaned of verdure. The nearer landscape folds against the distance mantling bramble, hedge, and stone. The rough granite edges of the porch, with finger-like and greedy clutch, snagged a border from the imperial robe and hugs to its harsh self a velvety covering.
Thus again has the touch of a seamless garment wrought a miracle.
