The fallen river left yards of ice on both banks. One false step could have been disastrous.
All around, the sound of breaking ice—a special language. A limb snapped, falling into the moving water, and the watcher standing at the edge of ice felt he was viewing a world in the process of remaking itself.
It was a world rough and raw, elemental, yet elegant, too, in that several of the trees wore necklaces.
