April 20, 1854

in Thoreau’s Journal:

A very pleasant & warm afternoon—the earth seems to be waking up—Frogs croak in the clear pools on the hillside where rocks have been taken out—& there is frog-spawn there & little tad poles are very lively in the sunny water.


I find some advantage in describing the experience of a day on the day following. At this distance it is more ideal like the landscape seen with the head inverted or reflections in water.
