The awakening beams gilded the gray-green festoons of moss-draped, century-old cypresses, and touched caressingly the white-winged herons that rose softly from shadowy wood-depths and took silent flight outward and upward in the October air. A flock of vultures, many as a gathering of crows in autumn, sailed low over the swamps and with outstretched necks reached eagerly toward the west, where the mighty river of the New World dragged its way to the sea through many channels. Occult sounds drifted along the brown waters of the bayous - smothered, misty sounds of forest creatures.
