Quote, Unquote: Robert P.T. Coffin

From Robert P.T. Coffin's book Kennebec: Cradle of Americans:
And there are days in January, after an icestorm,
for which chandelier is a pale word. It is like walking through a web of
rainbows to be up and out in such a glory. Every bush coated with cut diamonds
and the hills looking like the hills of the Apocalypse. It is a fine thing to be
alive in such splendor, and the splendor of the days gets into a man; the
splendor of nights so clear that the stars snap like sapphires overhead.
- John C.L. Morgan
