Quote #4

The jar was round upon the ground (7)

Terrific. Even though this jar commands the wilderness, it's so boring we can hardly stand it.

Quote #5

It did not give of bird or bush (11)

Ah-ha! So the wilderness has something the jar doesn't have after all. Things in the wilderness can breed and grow of their own control. You could trap a baby bird in a jar (but don't, guys, that's cruel), but you certainly couldn't create one with a jar.
