In the beginning of the novel Cather use weather to describe that calmness that Burden was feeling after being in Nebraska for a little while.

In Portland, the climate is considered mild. In the fall, you can expect large amounts of rain and highs in the range of 50-60 degrees. In the winter, it cools down and the rain may be interrupted by a few blustery snow showers, effectively shutting the city down and making commutes a nightmare during the wintry storms. As spring rolls into summer, the skies clear and the sun comes out. With the additional warmth, the landscape comes alive with flowers and everything is bursting with color.
The descriptive language used in the second stanza assumes a certain brilliance when the poem reflects a positive tone when he says “the wide wide heavens!” He uses a sense of heightened colour when describing the nature surrounding him, e.g. “purple heath flowers!” Coleridge realises toward the end of the imaginative journey that nature is all around us for those who have the desire, passion and determination to search for it. Conversational tone is also conveyed in ‘Frost at Midnight’. Frost at Midnight is in an secluded cottage during the stillness of night. “The frost performs its secret ministry” at the start of the first stanza implies personification used to establish the stunning silence of nature and the frost falling outside.

My own experiences are suburban living and just enjoying the weather and scenery. Many of the ways of living from that era that Tayo and his family experienced are all but gone now. Tayo describes a place in Ceremony, (1977) that I love and have believed about the Southwest, “There was a peaceful silence beneath the sounds of the wind; it was a silence with no trace of people.” To me, this is what I think of as the Southwest and want to think of as the Southwest, although it is not as true as it once was.

In the fall of 2001, numerous events have taken place on this chilly season, but there is one episode in my childhood that I could recall precisely from start to end. Beginning with my outfit at the time, which was a simple light pink shirt with flowers in the middle and light blue house shorts, then continuing with the day.
