Robert Genn at Lake O'Hara
I got to the beautiful Lake O’Hara lying in a rainbow sleep, under the steeps of Mount Lefroy and the waterfalls of Oesa. And there I realized some of the blessedness of mortals… I looked at the emerald and violet of her colour. It is emerald and malachite, and jade, and rainbow green, and mermaid’s eyes… These are some of the people who stand about O’Hara: Lefroy, Victoria, Huber, Wiwaxy, Cathedral, Odaray. I have memories of the clearest crystal mountain days imaginable, when we fortunates in the heights seemed to be sky people living in light alone.”
