“Gothic” by Aldous Huxley


Sharp spires pierce upwards, and the clouds are full of

tumbling bells. Reckless, break-neck, head over heels

down an airy spiral of stairs run the bells.' Upon Paul's

steeple stands a tree.'

Up again and then once more to the bottom, two steps at

a time. 'As full of apples as can be.'
