When dab chicks are first set out to pasture they may be resistant to various archetypal states of individuation, and integration. While surrendering to a gradual blending into nature, including the terraced garden plot, the orchard, the tree as well as underbrush, dab chicks eventually gain strength and learn to lean into the angled brightness of flying. Author Elizabeth Bishop tells us specifically the dab chicks are just excuses for the imagination to enjoy earth's biosphere as well as the transformative voice of nature poetry.

Publisher: Virago Press (UK)
Published Date: 2008
Categories: Diamantina (Minas Gerais, Brazil)
From Elizabeth Bishop's introduction: 'When I first came to Brazil, in 1952, I asked my Brazilian friends which Brazilian books I should begin reading ... They frequently recommended this little book, "Minha Vida de Menina" ... In English the title means "My Life as a Little Girl" or "Young Girl", and that is exactly what the book is about, but it is not reminiscences; it is a diary, the diary actually kept by a little girl between the ages of 12 and 15, in the far-off town of Diamantina, in 1893-1895 ... The more I read the book the better I liked it. The scenes and events it described were odd, remote, and long ago, and yet fresh, sad, funny and eternally true. The longer I stayed on in Brazil the more Brazilian the book seemed, yet much of it could have happened in any small provincial town or village, and at almost any period of history - at least before the arrival of the automobile and the moving-picture theatre

Andrew Lang Poem
Ballade Of The Midnight Forest
 by Andrew Lang

Still sing the mocking fairies, as of old,
Beneath the shade of thorn and holly-tree;
The west wind breathes upon them, pure and cold,
And wolves still dread Diana roaming free
In secret woodland with her company.
'Tis thought the peasants' hovels know her rite
When now the wolds are bathed in silver light,
And first the moonrise breaks the dusky grey,
...
