F

White. . . is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black. . . . God paints in many colours; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white.
N

K

One far fierce hour and sweet;
There was a shout about my ears,
And palms before my feet.
