FENÊTRE

 

“The earth is not a mere fragment of dead history,
stratum upon stratum like the leaves of a book,
to be studied by geologists and antiquaries chiefly,
but living poetry like the leaves of a tree,
which precede flowers and fruit ~
not a fossil earth, but a living earth;
compared with whose great central life
all animal and vegetable life is merely parasitic.”

 

~ Henry David Thoreau ~
