Monday, October 24, “stooks arise
Hopkins often chooses words with long historical roots that wrinkle the foreheads of present-tense readers; hence the definition of “stocks”: “. . . sheaves set upright in a field” — http://www.thefreedictionary.com/stooks
1st morning back on campus, savoring sun, gusty winds, and a high pressure atmosphere (+ 30.19 in.) An excellent end-of-October day to post “Hurrahing in the Harvest,” an Autumn favorite of many people. The only things I changed from Oct 26 last year, are the precise sunrise and sunset moments.
Enjoy the day,
