Winter Nacht  (5th year rpm)

Can it sometimes be the case that angles or devils walk among us mortals, on this our earth? WN is a dialogue taking place between two strangers,, met on a forest road in the twilight in the winter of 1750... the air is cool and the dusk falls early in the german winter,,, the travelers one a young musician returning from a church concert and the other ??? travel together,though the young musician is dressed in cloak and full winter wear, and still cool, the other is dressed only in a light wear and seems untouched by the winter,,,,  talk wanders from  the weather to music to gossip, and finally on to faith,, with the stranger asking many questions on what the mussician believes and why
