Winter Sky Burns in the Rockies
sunset over the thawing bow river in banff alberta
"Softly the evening came.
The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended his golden wand o'er the landscape;
Trinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together."
