Most of the trees are salsbut other kinds are not wanting. Treetop mingling with treetop, foliage melting into foliage, the interminable lines progress; without crevice, without gap, without even a way for the light to enter, league after league and again league after league the boundless ocean of leaves advances, tossing wave upon wave in the wind.
Underneath, thick darkness; even at englksh the light is dim and uncertain; a seat of terrific gloom. There the foot of man never treads; eglish except the illimitable rustle of the leaves and the cry of wild beasts and birds, no sound is heard. In this interminable, impenetrable wilderness of blind gloom, it is night.
The hour is midnight and a very dark midnight; even outside the woodland it is dark and nothing can be seen. Within the forest the piles of gloom are like the darkness in the womb of the earth itself.
Bird and beast are utterly and motionlessly still.

Who would have said then that a human sound had englissh heard in those wilds? Three times the wide sea of darkness was thus shaken. What more can I give?
