North & South1946This celestial seascape, with white herons got up as angels,
flying high as they want and as far as they want sidewisein tiers and tiers of immaculate reflections;the whole region, from the highest herondown to the weightless mangrove islandwith bright green leaves edged neatly with bird-droppingslike illumination in silver,and down to the suggestively Gothic arches of the mangrove roots
and the beautiful pea-green back-pasturewhere occasionally a fish jumps, like a wildflowerin an ornamental spray of spray;this cartoon by Raphael for a tapestry for a Pope:it does look like heaven.But a skeletal lighthouse standing therein black and white clerical dress,who lives on his nerves, thinks he knows better.He thinks that hell rages below his iron feet,that that is why the shallow water is so warm,and he knows that heaven is not like this.Heaven is not like flying or swimming,but has something to do with blackness and a strong glareand when it gets dark he will remember somethingstrongly worded to say on the subject.
