It was a fine wintry piece; the sea green and running in ridges with frothing heads, the sky very pale among the dark snow- laden clouds, the sun darting a ray now and again, which was swung into the north by the shadows of the clouds until they extinguished it.- "The Frozen Pirate", W. Clark Russell.
