THE WOODS ARE DARK AND TERRIBLE














Picture copyright 2015

"The woods are dark and terrible,
And must be entered by crossing a stream.
There the coward withers, the faint-heart retreats.
For it is there that the Childe Rowland must blow the snail horn,
And face the enemy whom no man can ever unhorse."


An excerpt from a letter by Robert Cochrane to Bill Gray, the former alluding to the poetry of Robert Browning.
