Virginia Woolf - early September, 1926
from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.3, 1925-30, page 153:
Many scenes have come & gone unwritten, since it is today the 4th Sept, a cold grey blowy day, made memorable by the sight of a kingfisher, & by my sense, waking early, of being again visited by the 'spirit of delight'. "Rarely rarely comest thou, spirit of delight." That was I singing this time last year & sang so poignantly that I have never forgotten it, or my vision of a fin rising on a wide blank sea.
