Frederick McCUBBIN: Winter’s morning, 1914

Day shrinks

in the face of sheets of rain

We are contained

by the rain

An inside day,

a retreat from Nature

 

Pace slowed,

reduced to essential tasks

Work is then paused

 

Hours fill out

with rest,

winter leisure

 

Daylight curtailed

shortened
