“ The gentle Mother of all
Showed me the lore of colors and of sounds ;
The innumerable tenements of beauty ;
The miracle of generative force ;
Far-reaching concords of Astronomy
Felt in the plants and in the punctual birds;
Mainly, the linked purpose of the whole;
And, chiefest prize, found I true liberty—
The home of homes plain-dealing Nature gave.”

RALPH WALDo EMERSON.
