Descriptivewords show the narrator's con-sciousness of the boy's response to beauty and the response of theneighborhood people,who are blind to beauty: North RichmondStreet is "blind"; its houses, inhabited by "decent"people, stare un-seeingly at one another-and all this is under a sky of "ever-changingviolet," in a settingof gardens marred by the "odours of ash-pits"and "dark odorous stables."

He thought his happiness was complete when, as he meandered aimlessly along, suddenly he stood by the edge of a full-fed river. Never in his life had he seen a river before—this sleek, sinuous, full-bodied animal, chasing and chuckling, gripping things with a gurgle and leaving them with a laugh, to fling itself on fresh playmates that shook themselves free, and were caught and held again. All as a-shake and a-shiver—glints and gleams and sparkles, rustle and swirl, chatter and bubble. The Mole was bewitched, entranced, fascinated. By the side of the river he trotted as one trots, when very small, by the side of a man who holds one spellbound by exciting stories; and when tired at last, he sat on the bank, while the river still chattered on to him, a babbling procession of the best stories in the world, sent from the heart of the earth to be told at last to the insatiable sea. — (Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows)
