Sometimes I Found Them Among The Sand Of The Heath, The Sea Of Golden Brown Surging Up Yellow Billows Six Feet High About Me, Where The Dry Lizard Hid, Or Basked, Of Kin, Too, To Old Time.

Or the rush of the sea wave brought them to me, wet and gleaming, up from the depths of what unknown Past?

Where they nestled in the root crevices of trees forgotten before Egypt. The living mind opposite the dead pebble - did you ever consider the strange and wonderful problem there? Only the thickness of the skin of the hand between them. The chief use of matter is to demonstrate to us the existence of the soul. The pebble-stone tells me I am a soul because I am not that that touches the nerves of my hand. We are distinctly two, utterly separate, and shall never come together. The little pebble and the great sun overhead - millions of miles away: yet is the great sun no more distinct and apart than this which I can touch. Dull-surfaced matter, like a polished mirror, reflects back thought to thought's self within.

I listened to the sweet-briar wind this morning; but for weeks and weeks the stark black oaks stood straight out of the snow as masts of ships with furled sails frozen and ice-bound in the haven of the deep valley. Each was visible to the foot, set in the white slope, made individual in the wood by the brilliance of the background.
