Excerpt from From the Five Rivers

Outside the village a man stood alone in the moonless night. Yet it was not dark; for in the unending depths of violet blue the stars hung many hued and many-sized - each in their order, so clear, SO bright, that the Simile as one star differeth from another in glory stood out in all its vivid truth, undimmed by the mists of a Western atmosphere.

The man, however, neither looked nor thought of the stars. He had seen them Shine thus after the winter rains ever Since he had been able to see, and his eyes were full of the Shadowy stretch of level fields which seemed to rise towards the pale horizon. There was a fresh, damp smell in the air, and close to his feet some lighter Shadows sur rounded by darker ones Showed that the recent rains had been heavy enough to leave fresh pools of water in the hollows whence the village had been'erom the five rivers.
