savage and awful, though
beautiful. I looked with awe at
the ground I trod on, to see what
the Powers had made there, the
form and fashion and material of
their work. This was that Earth of
which we had heard, made out
of Chaos and Old Night. .......
What is this Titan that has
possession of me? Talk of
mysteries! Think of our life in
nature,- daily to be shown
matter, to come in contact with it,
- rocks, trees, wind on our
cheeks!! The solid earth!The
actual world! The common
sense! Contact! Contact! Who
are we? Where are we?"
