17Emerson wrote:Seven men went through a field, one after another. One was a farmer, he saw only the grass; the next was an astronomer, he saw the horizon and stars; the physician noticed the standing water and suspected miasma;
18he was followed by a soldier, who glanced over the ground, found it is easy to hold, and saw in the moment how the troops could be disposed; then came the geologist, who noticed the boulders and sandy loam; after him came the real state broker,
19who bethought him how the line of the house lots should run, where would be the driveway, and the stables. The poet admired the shadows cast by some tress, and still more the music of some thrushes and meadow lark.
