A Lake

A Lake
is the landscape's
most beautiful and expressive
It is earth's eye;
looking into which the beholder measures
the depth of his own nature.
The fluviatile trees
next to the shore
are the slender eyelashes
which fringe it,
and the wooded hills and cliffs
are its
overhanging brows.

- Henry David Thoreau
