 in Thoreau’s Journal: 

It is a lichen day, with a little moist snow falling.  The great green lungwort lichen shows now on the oaks


(strange that there should be none on the pines close by), and the fresh bright chestnut fruit of other kinds, glistening with moisture, brings life and immortality to light.
