Big THANKS to everyone who has been reading and commenting on these poems! I can feel my enthusiasm starting to wane (it's a long month!), and your encouragement really helps! Mwah!
Today's piece is "New England Farm in Winter" by unknown 19th Century American artist.
I love the blue skies in this one! And it's not a deep snow, so right away I started thinking this is the end of winter, or perhaps even spring! Even here in Alabama we've had an April snow before... looks completely different than a winter one. So I went with that line of thinking, mainly because it's hard to say something fresh and new about snow! It's been done and done and done beautifully. But snow in spring? Now there's a fresh angle.... what would the snow say?
