Given what I have written thus far, it seems to me there are three directions for the “Mist from the Mountains” draft before me: a gentle reflection on its passage across the mountain (a one-quatrain composition); a vignette of the same with an allusion to the “Shepherd Girl” anecdote (ditto); and a foreboding account of the mist advancing and the shepherd girl retreating (a two-quatrain composition). I must now develop each direction fully to see which results in the better poem. Write ho!
