Travels In a Tree-top
PEARLY mist shut out the river, the meadows, and every field for miles. I could not detect the ripple of the out going tide, and the heartiest songster sent no cheerful cry above the wide-spreading and low-lying cloud; but above all this silent, desolate, and seemingly deserted outlook there was a wealth of sunshine and a canopy of deep-blue sky. Here and there, as islands in a boundless sea, were the leafy tops of a few tall trees, and these, I fancied, were tempting regions to explore. Travels in a tree-top — surely, here we have a bit of novelty in this worn-out world.
