December 14, 1852

in Thoreau’s Journal:  

We have now the scenery of winter, though the snow is but an inch or two deep…Ah, who can tell the serenity and clarity of a New England winter sunset? This could not be till the cold and the snow came. Ah, what isles those western clouds! in what a sea! Just after sunset there is a broad pillar of light for many minutes in the west.
