YOUTH
1. Burzee

Have you heard of the great Forest of Burzee? Nurse used to sing of it when I was a child. She sang of the big
tree\u2212trunks, standing close together, with their roots intertwining below the earth and their branches
intertwining above it; of their rough coating of bark and queer, gnarled limbs; of the bushy foliage that roofed
the entire forest, save where the sunbeams found a path through which to touch the ground in little spots and
to cast weird and curious shadows over the mosses, the lichens and the drifts of dried leaves.

The Forest of Burzee is mighty and grand and awesome to those who steal beneath its shade. Coming from
the sunlit meadows into its mazes it seems at first gloomy, then pleasant, and afterward filled with
never\u2212ending delights.

For hundreds of years it has flourished in all its magnificence, the silence of its inclosure unbroken save by
the chirp of busy chipmunks, the growl of wild beasts and the songs of birds.
