This thought arose within me during a late walk in the neighbourhood of my village. The morning was cold and clear, but the sun shone bright, and not a cloud ?itted across the heavens. The little river ?owed over its rocky bed, and on either side, the spreading branches of the oak, the elm, and birch, had intercepted the ?akes of snow, and formed a sparkling arcade. Every twig glittered with boar-frost; even the coarser herbage, ferns, reeds, and mosses, seemed as if ?edged with icy feathers; while here and there the daphne-laurel and the holly firmly grasped the rugged banks. Their dark shining leaves were gemmed and edged with frozen parti cles, that re?ected the colours of the rainbow; and across them, innumerable spiders, as if proud to display their skill, had spun and interlaced their glittering webs.
