That throws its own rich colour over all,
And makes all beautiful.“

„The beauty of the forests of Indiana in the rich and lovely month of May surpasses all description.“

—  Théodore Guérin Catholic saint and nun from France 1798 - 1856

Third Journal of Travel (1844-1845)
Contexto: The beauty of the forests of Indiana in the rich and lovely month of May surpasses all description. The rivers, swollen by the rains, flow through long lanes of verdure, caressing the islands they seem to carry with them in their course and which look like floating nosegays. The trees raise their straight trunks to the height of more than a hundred and twenty feet and are crowned with tops of admirable beauty. The magnolia, the dog-wood, the catalpa, covered with white flowers, the permed snow of the springtime, intermingle with the delicate green of the other trees.

„Their hearts swelled with its beauty, its mystery. With all it revealed, and all that it hid.“

—  Charles de Lint author 1951

Part Two: The Lost Music, "The Touchstone" p. 507
The Little Country (1991)
Contexto: They stood and listened, arms around each other for comfort, as the sound washed over them. It reverberated in the marrow of their bones, sung high and sweet, heartbreakingly mournful, quick as a jig, slow as the saddest air. Their hearts swelled with its beauty, its mystery. With all it revealed, and all that it hid.
