Sunrise and such

I stood upon the hills, when heaven's wide arch
Was glorious with the sun's returning march,

From EotE
And woods were brightened, and soft gales
Went forth to kiss the sun-clad vales.

From EotE
I heard the distant waters dash,
I saw the current whirl and flash,

From EotE
And richly, by the blue lake's silver beach,
The woods were bending with a silent reach.

From EotE
If thou art worn and hard beset
With sorrows, that thou wouldst forget,

From EotE

If thou wouldst read a lesson, that will keep
Thy heart from fainting and thy soul from sleep,

From EotE
Go to the woods and hills! No tears
Dim the sweet look that Nature wears.

--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The pictures and poetry are very nice. There has been a full moon and a clear sky the past few nights witch lights up the night. So far it's been a beautiful fall.

Thanks. Rub it in. You live in heaven. We live in the city.
