in Thoreau’s Journal:
The autumnal tints about the pond are now perfect—nothing can exceed the brilliancy of some of the maples which stand by the shore & extend their red banners over the water—why should so many be yellow? I see the browner yellow of the chestnuts on Pine Hill— The maples & hickories are a clearer yellow. Some white oaks are red— The shrub oaks are bloody enough for a ground— The red & black oaks are yet green.
