QuotationBlazing hot, stuffy air, barely moved by a little breeze here in the woodshed. What a day it is going to be! Even the woods will be an airless furnace. It calls for one of those nature poems, a kerygma of heat such as the Celts never had. (Finished Kenneth Jackson's excellent book on Early Celtic Nature Poetry before Prime as the fierce sun began to burn my field.)
