"And so she comes to dream herself the tree, The wind possessing her, weaving her young veins,  Holding her to the sky and its quick blue, ...Drowning the fever of her hands in sunlight.  She has no memory, nor fear, nor hope  Beyond the grass and shadows at her feet."  - Hart Crane, Abstract Garden, 1932     ...and the beautiful picture is by Edward Weston, 1937 (pine, Lake Tenata, Yosemite National park)
