Now when I had mastered the language of this water,

and had come to know every trifling feature that bordered the great river

as familiarly as I knew the letters of the alphabet,

I had made a valuable acquisition.

But I had lost something, too.

I had lost something which could never be restored to me while I lived.

All the grace, the beauty, the poetry, had gone out of the majestic river!

I still kept in mind a certain wonderful sunset which I witnessed

when steamboating was new to me.

A broad expanse of the river was turned to blood;

in the middle distance the red hue brightened into gold,

through which a solitary log came floating, black and conspicuous;

in one place, a long slanting mark lay sparkling upon the water;

in another the surface was broken by boiling, tumbling rings,

that were as many-tinted as an opal;

where the ruddy flush was faintest,

was a smooth spot that was covered with graceful circles and radiating lines,

ever so delicately traced;

the shore on our left was densely wooded,

and the somber shadow that fell from this forest

was broken in one place by a long, ruffled trail that shone like silver;

and high above the forest wall a clean-stemmed dead tree waved a single leafy bough

that glowed like a flame in the unobstructed splendor that was flowing from the sun.

There were graceful curves,reflected images, woody heights,soft distances;

and over the whole scene, far and near, the dissolving lights drifted steadily,

enriching it every passing moment with new marvels of coloring.
