July 20, 1854

in Thoreau’s Journal:

A muttering thunder cloud in NW––gradually rising ––& with its advanced guard hiding the sun–– & now & then darting forked lightning–– The wind rising ominously also drives me home again.


At length down it comes upon the thirsty herbage beating down the leaves with grateful tender violence. & slightly cooling the air.
