Waxing Moon


It has been a crisp, cold, sunny day here in the interior of the province (-19°C). This picture was taken at 3:30 p.m. when a waxing moon was seen above the shining poplar and spruce trees.

Winter Trees by William Carlos Williams

All the complicated details
of the attiring and
the disattiring are completed!
A liquid moon
moves gently among
the long branches.
Thus having prepared their buds
against a sure winter
the wise trees
stand sleeping in the cold.

~ William Carlos Williams (1883-1963)
