Everything had Meaning

"The brown fields were partly flooded; they were strung with chains of chill, grey pools. The pattern of the pools had meaning. The pools had been written on to the fields by the rain. The pools were magic worked by the rain just as the tumbling’s of the black birds against the grey was a spell that the sky was working and the motion of the grey-brown grasses was a spell that the wind made. Everything had meaning.”

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell
