Quiet soul, peaceful night
Half a moon rides in a sky silvered with moonlight and starlight. The dark hills edge the landscape with beautiful silhouette. No dog bark breaks the peace, no bell from cathedral, no bird wing or call. The merest breath of breeze disturbs the sleeping leaves. Moonshadows mosaic patterns beneath the winter tree. Cold frost gives way to rain like silk splinters and the ground softens in thaw.
