    Mein Hauptinteresse an diesen Gedicht Muirs gilt v a dem hierin ggf erkennbaren Einfluss der Trilogie des Wiener Autoren mosaischer Provenienz Broch DIE SCHLAFWANDLER und deren Thema vom Zerfall der Werte, wie in den Einschüben erkennbar

    I am particularly still interested in exactly that poem especially since I do consider its title already to mirror the age Muir used to live in - with anything changing especially in First World War´s aftermath and ere World War II´s outbreak just like aftermath

Would he, surrendering quick to obvious hate,
Fill half eternity with cries and tears,

Scotland's Winter

Now the ice lays its smooth claws on the sill,
The sun looks from the hill
Helmed in his winter casket,
And sweeps his arctic sword across the sky.
