Man and the Natural World Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #7

[...] This stone-cliff storms dash on;
snowstorm, attacking, binds all the ground,
tumult of winter, when the dark one comes,
night-shadow blackens, sends from the north
rough hailstorm in anger toward men.

Yet again, nature becomes an ominous force that "attacks," this time in the form of the winter weather that batters the building and "binds" the ground. It's seems even more evil when the storm is called the "dark one" whose attack is motivated by anger.
