The Meadow Essay

The Meadow

There was excellent July day, one of those days, which occur only
then, when weather was established for a long time. The sky is clear
from the earliest morning; morning dawn does not blaze by the fire: it
spills by gentle bloom. Sun - not fiery, not incandesced, as during
the hot drought, not dim- crimson, as before grow brown, but bright
and peacefully floats under the narrowband long cloudlet, fresh will
brighten and will be immersed and its violet fog. Upper, thin edge of
the extended cloudlet will begin to sparkle by snakes; their luster is
such to the luster of forged silver... But the playing rays here again
gushed out, - and gaily it is stately, as if taking off, heavenly body
rises more powerfully. Many round high clouds usually appear about
noon, golden- grey, with the tender white edges. It is similar to
islands, scattered along the infinitely spilled river, flowing around
by their deeply transparent sleeves of flat dark blue, they barely
move; further, to the horizon, they are shifted, they crowd, the dark
blue between them to no longer see; but themselves they are so azure,
as the sky: they everything right through proniknuty by light and by
heat. Color of horizon, light, pale- violet, it does not change during
entire day and it is around identical; nowhere it grows dark,
thunderstorm does not thicken; perhaps somewhere will be lengthened
from top to bottom the bluishstrips: that will be sown hardly
noticeable rain. These clouds disappear toward the evening; the latter
of them, blackish and not determined, as smoke, they lie down by pink
clubs opposite the setting sun; on the spot, where it was rolled so
quietly, as quietly it ascended the sky, ruby-colored siyan'e stands
brief time above the darkened earth, I, quietly blinking, as the with
great care carried candle, evening star will light itself on it. All
are softened during such days of paint; they are bright, but they are
not bright; on everything lies the press some of touching gentleness.
During such days of heats it is sometimes is very strong, sometimes
even "steams" on the slopes pour on; but wind accelerates, the
accumulated intense heat separates, and vortex- rotations - the
undoubted sign of a constant weather - by high white posts go for a
walk along the roads through the plowedland. In dry and pure air it
smells ice-hole, by the compressed rye, by buckwheat; even per hour to
the night you do not feel dampness. A similar weather desires farmer
for the harvesting of bread...

I reached finally the angle of forest, but there there was no road
whatever: some nekoshenye, low bushes widely spread before me, and
after them, daleko-daleko, and desert field was seen. I again stopped.
"That after parable? But yes where 4?"I began to recollect, as where
it walked during the day... "3! Yes these are...
