  • On the slopes above his path the trunks of the ashes and sycamores, a honey gold in the oblique sunlight, erected their dewy green vaults of young leaves; there was somthing mysteriously religious about them, but of a religion before religion; a druid balm, a green sweetness over all . . . and such an infinite of greens, some almost black in the further recesses of the foliage; from the most intense emerald to the palest pomona.
    --John Fowles, 1969, The French Lieutenant's Woman
