Pat's House at Sunset

Pat's House at Sunset

One afternoon last winter, just as the sun was going down, I looked out the window and saw this scene of my neighbor's house. One corner of his house, with its snow-covered roof set against a huge evergreen, silhouetted against a salmon-pink sunset sky. The birds were roosting in a nearby tree, getting ready for the night ahead; a few hardy members of the flock still sat strung out like clothespins on the overhead wires.
