Bronte Waterfall


Bronte

".........a perfect torrent racing over the rocks, white and beautiful!" . Charlotte Bronte, November 29th 1854."I intended to have written a line yesterday, but just as I was sitting down for that purpose, Arthur called to me to take a walk. We set off, not intending to go far; but though wild and cloudy it was fine in the morning; when we got about half-a-mile on the moors, Arthur suggested the idea of the waterfall; after the melted snow, he said it would be fine. I had often wished to see it in its winter power, so we walked on. It was fine indeed; a perfect torrent racing over the rocks, white and beautiful!"

Charlotte Bronte, November 29th 1854

How Manifold
Are thy works!
In Wisdom Hast
Thou Made Them All:

Of Thy Riches
