A beautiful discription

Somerset Maugham never disappointed me. i was and am an ardant fan of his short stories. I happened to read his collection of short stories again. A beautiful page from his short story.

"On each bank of the river were mangroves and nipah palm, and behind them the dense green of forests. In the distance stretched blue mountains, range upon range, as far as the eye could see.She had no sense of confinement nor gloom, but rather of openness and wide spaces where the exultant fancy could wander with delight.The green glittered in sunshine and the sky was blith and cheerful. the gracious land seemed to offer her a smiling welcome."

-- a passage from short story "The Force Of Circumstance" by Somerset Maugham.
