Description There came to me a delicate, but at the same time a deep, strong and sensuous enjoyment of the beautiful greenearth, the beautiful sky and sun; I felt them, they gave me inexpressible delight, as if they embraced and pouredout their love upon me. It was I who loved them, for my heart was broader than the earth; it is broader now thaneven then, more thirsty and desirous. After the sensuous enjoyment always come the thought, the desire: That Imight be like this; that I might have the inner meaning of the sun, the light, the earth, the trees and grass, translatedinto some growth of excellence in myself, both of the body and of mind; greater perfection of physique, greaterperfection of mind and soul; that I might be higher in myself - Richard Jefferies . .
