    It is even more grim and wild than you had anticipated, a damp and intricate wilderness, in the spring everywhere wet and miry. The aspect of the country, indeed, is universally stern and savage, excepting the distant views of the forest from hills, and the lake prospects, which are mild and civilizing in a degree.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Still falls the Rain—
    Dark as the world of man, black as our loss—
    Blind as the nineteen hundred and forty nails
    Upon the Cross.
    —Dame Edith Sitwell (1887–1964)
