Wordless Wednesday...


"The ice was here, the ice was there, The ice was all around... It cracked and growled, and roared and howled, Like noises in a swound!"

- Samuel Coleridge

That's some dreary looking weather! Nice looking photo though! It really captures the subject well.

Not a fan of the ice storms, but they sure do give everything a special look afterwards!

Interesting weather vane. My poor eyes see a walking fish. This is some storm, though! Beautiful picture.

Great pic and I love the verse you've put with it. What's a "swound"?

bluemountainmama said...

l.l.- ha! i wondered the same thing and i looked it up. it's an archaic word meaning 'to swoon'.

Love the pig! My daughter collects pigs. She also loves Sufjan Stevens. I hadn't heard his music in a while, sorta forgot about him. Thanks for the reminder. I am going to a song off YouTube to put on my blog. :D
