"I mused (I believe), as above told, for more than an hour - for time rolled on, leaving me unconscious of its flow - and subjects of contemplation crowded every instant more and more into my brain, and presented themselves for investigation in never-ending variety of affinity and combination. But my boatmen were rather less disposed to the meditative - in fact, they had become exceedingly impatient, for dark clouds, once more gathering overhead, announced a repetition of the morning's downpour, as they call it. Down, however, it did not pour, though the sky was shrouded in the gloom; and even the lake itself changes its wonted blue into a dull brown colour, becoming also slightly rippled, as gust at intervals passed over its surface."
