Nature repairs her ravages, but not all. The uptorn trees are not rooted again; the parted hills are left scarred; if there is a new growth, the trees are not the same as the old ... To the eyes that have dwelt on the past, there is no thorough repair.

"...But the water does not look behind.

It flees, runs away further,

Where the eyes will not see her,

The water that wanders."

That is why we must look for, and see, the forest, not the trees.
