Is all corroding? No. Through an avenue off spires a zephyr floats; a bird whistles; a freshet bears away from a choked river  (Mervyn Peake Quotes) I was brooding, boy. Than which there is no richer pastime. It muffles one with rotting plumes. It gives forth sullen music. It is the smell of home  (Mervyn Peake Quotes) The crumbling castle, looming among the mists, exhaled the season, and every cold stone breathed it out. The tortured trees by the dark lake burned and dripped, their leaves snatched by the wind were whirled in wild circles through the towers. The clouds mouldered as they lay coiled, or shifted themselves uneasily upon the stone skyfield, sending up wreathes that drifted through the turrets and swarmed up hidden walls  (Mervyn Peake Quotes) This tower, patched unevenly with black ivy, arose like a mutilated finger from among the fists of knuckled masonry and pointed blasphemously at heaven.

It was, once the initial shock of anger and pain was over, a calculated thing that grew in a bloodless way  (Mervyn Peake Quotes) Cold love’s the loveliest love of all. So clear, so crisp, so empty. In short, so civilized  (Mervyn Peake Quotes) There are times when the air that floats between mortals becomes, in its stillness and silence, as cruel as the edge of a scythe  (Mervyn Peake Quotes)
