THIS IS A delicious evening when the whole body is one sense and imbibes delight through every pore I go and come with a strange liberty in Nature a part of herself As I walk along the stony shore of the pond in my shirt-sleeves though it is cool as well as cloudy and windy and I see nothing special to attract me all the elements are unusually congenial to me The bullfrogs trump to usher in the night and the note of the whip-poor-will is borne on the rippling wind from over the water Sympathy with the fluttering alder and poplar leaves almost takes away my breath yet like the lake my serenity is rippled but not ruffled These small waves raised by the evening wind are as remote from storm as the smooth reflecting surface Though it is now dark the mind still blows and roars in the wood the waves still dash and some creatures lull the rest with their notes The repose is never complete The wildest animals do not repose but seek their prey now the fox and skunk and rabbit now roam the fields and woods without fear They are Natures watchmen- links which connect the days of animated life When I return to my house I find that visitors have been there and left their cards either a bunch of flowers or a wreath of evergreen or a name in pencil on a yellow walnut leaf or a chip They who come rarely to the woods take some little piece of the forest into their hands to play with by the way which they leave either intentionally or accidentally One has peeled a willow wand woven it into a ring and dropped it on my table I could always tell if visitors had called in my absence either by the bended twigs or grass or the print of their shoes and generally of what sex or age
