I saw hybernacula move like clouds, & the turtle's eyes red within. I saw a badger root among soft yellow plums of moonlight, & at dawn, a sheep shade the dews from its coat, in coronae. I saw 'vegetable gold' - the light of suns fold in upon itself, as leaves of a cabbage I watched the elder grow first green, then white, then a lustrous black.

Its roof sags, encrusted with that emerald-green moss, Tortula ruralis: smooth, rounded clumps now, in the dryness of harvest, partly shrunken, & of a yellow-stained olive. Three large rooks move slowly above the ripe stalks unperturbed by the reapers.
