Setting of a poem by my father (S N Solomons) about his feelings on winter:
Standing on this high place
In stark mid-winter
I gaze out upon the country
Folded in white silence,
And celebrate its elegance,
Its clean pure beauty
I breathe in crystalline ideas,
Sharp and measured,
Of pain and pleasure
And recall without regret
The sensual joys of summer.
(c) Stanley N Solomons
