The Summerhouse

The SummerhouseEvery spring, servants came to set up the summerhouse for the season, and every fall servants were the last to leave after preparing it for the winter.

Only the crows kept it company during the fleeting winter days when the sun appeared over the southern horizon for a few pale hours.
