Happy Winter!

First sunrise of the new winter.

"O Winter! ruler of the inverted year, . . .

I crown thee king of intimate delights,

Fireside enjoyments, home-born happiness,

And all the comforts that the lowly roof

Of undisturb'd Retirement, and the hours

Of long uninterrupted evening, know."

--William Cowper, The Task (from book IV)

Hope you will be back to post again soon.
