Overview

Excerpt from Neighbors Henceforth

As we went along the straight road, I began to see what was not there, while what was there dissolved slowly away from my open eyes. The April night, full of sounds and storm, had dropped upon the hills one last thin veil of snow, and this still stretched its gleamy film over their ridges. Below, it was gone from the wide flat lands, where blossoms expanded beneath the sun of the April day. These came by like white clouds caught in the twigs of the fruit trees. Along the road as we went, they showed above the tops of the high French walls, they shone mistily across the flat French distance. Among the taller trees, in the heights of the poplars and the willows, hung like a breath the faintly tinted web that betokened sap stirring, life awakening, leaves invisible but soon to come. Every early delicate hue of field and garden and wood beamed through skein upon skein of weaving exhalations. On either side the constantly straight road, I watched between the trunks of the poplars acres upon acres, where wet new grass glinted, brooks ran full, and far-off tufts of spring color, like puffs of smoke, seemed enmeshed in the tangle of the copses.
