In The Wintertime...

Dark spruce forest frowned on either side the frozen waterway.
The trees had been stripped by a recent wind
of their white covering of frost,
and they seemed to lean toward each other,
black and ominous, in the fading light.
A vast silence reigned over the land.

Jack London.... "White Fang"

Step away from the Pit Of Eternal Despair - nothing to see here, move along now...

That Dinosaur Jr song has always been a personal favorite - great choice!
