I am proud to present “THE WINTER GALLERY” …another of these galleries that grows and gets more awesome day by day.
We invite ALL ART-FORMS to make it interesting and versatile.

To help you get in the mood I give you “Winter” from Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” – and the text is a translation by Gwyn Morris
(taken from my CD)


Trembling, frozen in black frost,
in the icy blast of a bitter wind
hurrying, stamping your feet at every step,
with chattering teeth
because of the excessive cold.


Spending quite, contented days at the fireside
while the rain outside soaks the skin
Walking on the ice, trading slowly
and carefully for the fear of falling.


Slipping and sliding, falling down,
then again along the ice
and racing until the ice opens and breaks.


To feel rushing out of closed doors,
South and North wind and all the winds of war,
this is Winter
But such that it brings Joy.
