Winter - by Stacy Fahrion

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently?
 And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says,
 "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again." ~Lewis Carroll
Winter is loosely based on a motive from The Snow is Dancing, by Debussy.

The Gloaming - by Stacy Fahrion

"The snow had begun in the gloaming,
 and busily all the night
 had been heaping field and highway
 With a silence deep and white.”
 ~James Russell Lowell, The First Snowfall
