And still I dare to love

the sound of the light in the hours of deadness

the color of time on a ruined wall.

In my eyes I’ve lost everything.
Asking is so far away. And so close, this knowledge of want.

—Alejandra Pizarnik, “A Beggar Voice" (translated by Yvette Siegert)

My sorrow, when she’s here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane.

Unlike the magic of wizards, the magic of witches did not usually involve the application much raw power. The difference is between hammers and levers. Witches generally tried to tried to find the small point where a little change made a lot of result. To make an avalanche one could shake the mountain, or maybe you can just find exactly the right place to drop a snowflake.
