"In the Delta the sunsets were reddest light.  The sun went down lopsided
and wide as a rose on a stem in the west, and the west was a milk-white 'edge,
like the foam of the sea.  The sky, the fields, the little track, and the
bayou, over and over - all that had been bright or dark was now one color."

"Then a whole swarm of fireflies instantly flickered all around him, up
and down, back and forth, first one golden light and then another,
flashing without any of the weariness that had held back the souls.
These were the signs sent from God that he had not seen the
accumulated radiance of saved souls because he was not able, and that
his eyes were m ore able to see the fireflies of the Lord than with
his blessed souls."

"Well, the cypress in the bayou were touched with flame in their
leaves early to meet fall as they were early to meet spring and
with the same wild color.  The locust clung to the tree trunks the
birds were flying over every day now, and Roy said he heard them
calling in the night."

"It was the hour of sunset.  All souls that he had saved and
all those he had not took dusky shapes in the mist that hung
between the high banks, and seemed by their great number and
density to block his way and showed no signs of melting or changing
back into ist, s that he feared his passage was to be difficult forever"

the upthrust stones were in that strange
graveyard shade where, by the light they
give, the moss seems made of stone, and
the stone of moss."

"Each day the storm clouds were opening like great purple flowers
and pouring out their dark thunder.  Each nightfall, the storm
was laid down on their houses like a burden the day had carried. 
The noise of rain, of the gullies filling, of the little river leaping up
and running in waves, filled all The Landing"
