“Doctor Catchfly The lament of a slaughtered hare fills the forest. It fills the forest and disturbs nothing there. For the dying of a particular being is its own private business And everyone has to cope with it in whatever way he can … If the wax in our ears could melt, a moth on pine needles, A beetle half-eaten by a bird, a wounded lizard Would all lie at the center of the expanding circles Of their vibrating agony. ‘Diary of a Naturalist’, NCP 285”
