Thoreau for your Sunday…

The masses of the golden willow are seen in the distance on either side of the way…And as he passes between the portals, a sweet fragrance is wafted to him; he not only breathes but scents and tastes the air…He is richest who has most use for nature as raw material of tropes and symbols with which to describe life.If these gates of golden willows affect me, they correspond to the beauty and promises of some experience on which i am entering.If I am overflowering with life, am rich in experience for which i lack experience,then nature will be my language full of poetry…
