Inspired by the following passage from David Elginbrod by George MacDonald:

But I expect to see something in this fir wood. I’m here most mornings as the day dawns, and then later in the day….

Yet I have an expectation of seeing something, I don’t know what; for the whole place here seems full of a presence, …

[And] the sound in the fir trees are far more solemn and sweet [than the singing in church] at the same time, and much more like the praising of God than in the psalms altogether.
