To the editor:

On the first day of each month, the Deseret News opens a small window to give its readers a unique look at the beauties and harmonies of nature and the serene changing of the months and seasons. (See, for instance, "It's November . . . " on the editorial page of Nov. 1.)In 40 or 50 short lines we receive a soul-warming, ever-varied view of poetic scenes up and down the state, in beloved places - named and unnamed - and settings far and near. Anything and everything participates: animals, our feathered friends, the skies and stars, the crusty old farmer, innocent children, the flowers, trees and mountains.
