cascade & peacock

Quotations:

Complete Works of Virginia Woolf: The Voyage Out

"That great stream!" Helen would begin, gazing as if she saw a visionary cascade, "I've a good mind to go with you myself, Willoughby -- only I can't. Think of the sunsets and the moonrises -- I believe the colour are unimaginable."

"There are wild peacocks," Rachel hazarded. 

Definitions:

cascade:
1. a small waterfall, especially one of several falling down a steep slope with rocks;
2. ...

peacock:
a large male bird with long blue and green tail feathers that it can spread out like a fan.
