The Meadow

September 3, 2010 § Leave a comment

Meadow Bachelard has pointed out that the meadow, being nourished by the waters of a river, is in itself a subject of sadness, and that, in the true meadow of the soul, only asphodels grow. The winds find no melodious trees in the meadow – only the silent waves of uniform grass. Bachelard also mentions Empedocles’ description of ‘the meadow of ill fortune’.”

(Juan Eduardo Cirlot, A Dictionary of Symbols)
