The floor itself was like a magician's garden. Densely interwoven trees, shrubs, and parasitical climbers fought everywhere for

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 The Jolly Corner by Henry James:

He took it all in, and the more he took it the more it seemed to suffice: he was as much at peace as if he had had food and drink. It was the two women who had found him, on Mrs. Muldoon's having plied, at her usual hour, her latch-key - and on her having above all arrived while Miss Staverton still lingered near the house. She had been turning away, all anxiety, from worrying the vain bell-handle - her calculation having been of the hour of the good woman's visit; but the latter, blessedly, had come up while she was still there, and
