The Tranquil Hour in Acadia

Arrived home last night...just in time to capture the end of the 'tranquil hour'
“When the day changed …………..
… Settled to rest, and for a tranquil hour
The lengthening bluish shadows on the snow
…………..Flooded the earth with beauty and with peace.”
Quotes from the Poem: The Winter Scene by Bliss Carman

A Visitor "With an Eye that Fires and a Spell that Charms"

We had a magestic vistor in our cove on Long Pond this AM... (sorry we could not get a close up shot)

The Eagle (by James Gates Percival)
Bird of the broad and sweeping wing
Thy home is high in heaven,
Where wide the storms their banners fling,
And the tempest clouds are driven.
Thy throne is on the mountain top;
Thy fields---the boundless air;
And hoary peaks that proudly prop
The skies, thy dwellings are.

This is how I imagine him this AM...circling our cove, looking for his breakfast
"My prey I seek with piercing eye,
grasp with talon strong.
Then lift into the endless sky
to sing my victory song."

"With an eye that fires, and a spell that charms " (James Gates Percival)

Wise Trees Sleeping in the Cold

Winter Trees
Poem By William Carlos Williams 1883–1963 

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.

(Thank you, artist Gail Ribas for sharing your painting
