The poor artist's heart began beating fast. He expected every moment, his breath failing for fear, that the old man would look round the screen at him.

The fourth excerpt represents the element of Earth. It speaks of physical influences and the impact of the unseen on the visible world, and is drawn from Rivers to the Sea by Sara Teasdale:
