A Quote by Adam Nicolson on ignorance and poetry

The field is a halfway house, halfway between the detail of those intimately known places and the ignorance of a landscape view. . . . The essence of a field is that the cultural accommodates the natural there. The human being makes room for and makes use of those organisms that are not him. In that way the field is a poem to symbiosis, and a human contract with the natural.
