Excerpt from The Riverside Literature Series: Snow-Bound and Among the Hills "As the Spirits of Darkness be stronger in the dark, so good Spirits which be Angels of Light are augmented not only by the Divine light of the Sun, but also by our common Wood Fire: and as the Celestial Fire drives away dark spirits, so also this our Fire of Wood doth the same." - Cor. Agrippa, Occult Philosophy, Book I. ch v. "Announced by all the trumpets of the sky, Arrives the snow; and, driving o'er the fields, Seems nowhere to alight; the whited airHides hills and woods, the river and the heaven, And veils the farm-house at the garden's end.The sled and traveller stopped, the courier's feetDelayed, all friends shut out, the housemates sitAround the radiant fireplace, inclosedIn a tumultuous privacy of storm." Emerson, The Snow-Storm: The sun that brief December dayRose cheerless over hills of gray, And, darkly circled, gave at noonA sadder light than waning moon.Slow tracing down the thickening skyIts mute and ominous prophecy, A portent seeming less than threat, It sank from sight before it set.A chill no coat, however stout, Of homespun stuff could quite shut out, A hard, dull bitterness of cold, That checked, mid-vein, the circling race About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
