"EARTH'S CHILDREN CLEAVE TO EARTH"

by William Cullen Bryant

EARTH'S CHILDREN CLEAVE TO EARTH -

Earth's children cleave to Earth- her frail

Decaying children dread decay.

Yon wreath of mist that leaves the vale

And lessens in the morning ray-

Lookhowby mountain rivulet

It lingers as it upward creeps

And clings to fern and copsewood set

Along the green and dewy steeps:

Clings to the flowery kalmiaclings

To precipices fringed with grass

Dark maples where the wood-thrush sings

And bowers of fragrant sassafras.

Yet all in vain- it passes still

From hold to holdit cannot stay

And in the very beams that fill

The world with glorywastes away

TillParting from the mountain's brow

It vanishes from human eye

And that which sprung of earth is now

A portion of the glorious sky. - -

THE END
