Lord Dunsany

And now it would come through a hamlet glowing and comfortable in the night; and now to the dark, wet, open fields again; and many an owl it overtook as they drifted through the night, a people friendly to the Elf-folk. Sometimes it crossed wide rivers, leaping from star to star; and, choosing its way as it went, to avoid the hard rough roads, came before midnight to the East Anglian lands.
Lord Dunsany, "The Kith of the Elf-folk"

Remarkable item from the author's Wikipedia page: "Dunsany almost never rewrote anything; everything he ever published was a first draft." I highly doubt that, but it's still an entertainingly bold claim.
