Sunday Guest: Giants

From: CS Lewis' The Silver Chair (The Chronicles of Narnia)

The quote: " . . .  Look at that one, now! You could almost imagine that the lump on top was a head. It would be rather too big for the body, but it would do well enough for an ugly giant. And all that bushy stuff -- I suppose it's heather and birds' nests, really -- would do quite well for hair and beard. And the things sticking out on each side are quite like ears. They'd be horribly big, but then I dare say giants would have big ears, like elephants. And -- o-o-oh! --"

What the thunder said: Here is no water but only rock
Rock and no water and the sandy road
The road winding above among the mountains
Which are mountains of rock without water
. . .
There is not even solitude in the mountains
But red sullen faces sneer and snarl
. . .
