Français : Un enclos ceint une ferme comprenant une bergerie et, sur la droite, quatre ruches et un pigeonnier. À l'intérieur de la maison, une femme et deux jeunes gens se réchauffent devant le feu. À l'extérieur, un homme abat un arbre à la hache, des fagots à ses pieds, tandis qu'un autre s'apprête à rentrer en soufflant sur ses mains pour se réchauffer. Plus loin, un troisième conduit un âne, chargé de bois, en direction du village voisin

Outside, a man with bundles of sticks at his feet cuts down a tree with an ax, while another walks in the snow, blowing on his hands to warm up, and a third drives a donkey, loaded with wood, towards the neighboring village.
