Thoreau's Journal: 04-Sep-1841

I think I should write a poem to be called “Concord.” For argument I should have the River, the Woods, the Ponds, the Hills, the Fields, the Swamps and Meadows, the Streets and Buildings, and the Villagers. Then Morning, Noon, and Evening, Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, Night, Indian Summer, and the Mountains in the Horizon.

Concord really is poetry to see the place, and part of the reason I like Thoreau so much is because he realized and expounded the poetry of his local surroundings--which of course, I can relate to best being a New Englander. Can't wait to see Walden Pond in the fall this year.
