Drops at Dawn: March 6, 2016

'But I never rise at dawn and see the purple drops in the cabbage leaves; the red drops in the  roses.  I do not watch the setter nose in a circle, or lie at night watching the leaves hide the stars and the stars move and the leaves hang still.  The butcher calls; the milk has to be stood under a shade lest it should sour.  The Waves (125)

(March 6, 1930: Woolf was working on Part 6 of The Waves)
