Figure descriptions
Outdoor scene featuring a crowd of men, women, girls, boys, and a dog. Several figures are skating on a frozen river, and at least three of them have fallen down. Other figures crowd around the river’s edges. Some figures are watching the people on the ice. One young boy sits next to the ice tying his skates. Two figures climb a tree adjacent to the river. Snow blankets the ground. There are trees and a castle in the background. The poem title, “DECEMBER”, is centred at the bottom of the illustration. 1/2-page illustration contained within a single-ruled border.
