IN MERRY ENGLAND in the time of old, when good King Henry the Second ruled the land, there lived within the green glades
of Sherwood Forest, near Nottingham Town, a famous outlaw whose name was Robin Hood.
Through wooded glades
he wanders with dancing nymphs who foot it on some sheer cliff's edge, calling upon Pan, the shepherd-god, long- haired, unkempt.
Oh, grassy glades
! oh, ever vernal endless landscapes in the soul; in ye, --though long parched by the dead drought of the earthy life, --in ye, men yet may roll, like young horses in new morning clover; and for some few fleeting moments, feel the cool dew of the life immortal on them.

Only here and there were thickets, easily avoided, while he encountered winding, park-like glades
where the cattle had pastured in the days before war had run them off.
We occupied, in this place, the centre of a vast glade
surrounded by the lofty foliage of the submarine forest.
"Follow yonder green path till it leads you into a little grassy glade
, where is a crystal well and a hut of woven boughs hard by, and you shall see her whom you seek."
In a little moonlit glade
, a mile or so from the camp of the raiders, her rescuer halted and dropped her to the ground.
