i agree with you Judith Wrights use of imagery in 'The Forrest' is clever in the way she links images with life. To live is to search for new ways of living and expressing what we experience on a daily bases. i particularly like the lines ' times was to spend, and time's renewing harvest could never reach the end.' time is such a precious gift that we have to enjoy all that is before us. Thankyou for reminding me of the changing contours of life are to be enjoyed.
