Oct 24 – “stooks” – “a number of sheaves set upright in a field to dry”

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 “stooks”:  “. . . 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,
