At afterglow time To Bentley’s – Pipers – woods + frogs in the glassy ponds – In the twilight woods – a leaf whistle – a bird flies up at my foot unseen – a stray wind in the trees – I heard the stream coming out of gray void – Hoary ghostly fields – wet soggy turf. A star low in the east – I dreamt of sunflowers last night –"

Charles Burchfield, March 26, 1917
