W. 0. BRYANT,
1. The groves were God's first temples. Ere man learned
To hew the shaft, and lay the architrave,
Father, thy hand Hath reared these venerable columns: thou Didst weave this verdant roof. Thou didst look down Upon the naked earth, and forthwith rose All these fair ranks of trees. They in thy sun Budded, and shook their green leaves in thy breeze, And shot toward heaven. The century-living crow, Whose birth was in their tops, grew old and died Among their branches, till at last they stond, As now they stand, massy and tall and dark, Fit shrine for humble worshiper to hold Communion with his Maker.
Here are seen No traces of man's pomp or pride; no silks Rustle, no jewels shine, nor envious eyes Encounter; no fantastic carvings show The boast of our vain race to change the form Of thy fair works. But thou art here; thou fill'st The solitude. Thou art in the soft winds That run along the summits of these trees In music; thou art in the cooler breath, That, from the inmost darkness of the place, Comes, scarcely felt; the barky trunks, the ground, The fresh, moist ground, are all instinct with thee.
Here is continual worship; Nature here, In the tranquillity that thou dost love, Enjoys thy presence. Noiselessly around, From perch to perch the solitary bird Passes; and yon clear spring, that, ’midst its herbs, Wells softly forth, and visits the strong roots Or half the mighty forest, tells no tale Of all the good it does.
Thou hast not left Thyself without a witness, in these shades, Of thy perfections. Grandeur, strength, and grace Are here to speak of thee. This mighty oakBy whose immovable stem I stand, and seem Almost annihilated—not a prince, In all the proud old world beyond the deep,
Ere wore his crown as loftily as he
That is the soul of this wide universe.
Of the great miracle that still goes on,
Molder beneath them. 6.
O there is not lost
7. There have been holy men who hid themselves
Deep in the woody wilderness, and gave
Who deemed it were not well to pass life thus.
