Henry van Dyke. (1852–1933)
 
 
1
    Men have dulled their eyes with sin,
  And dimmed the light of heaven with doubt,
And built their temple-walls to shut thee in,
  And framed their iron creeds to shut thee out.
          God of the open Air.
2
    Often faltering feet
Come surest to the goal.
          Reliance.
3
    The blessing of earth is toil.
          The Toiling of Felix.
4
    He that planteth a tree is the servant of God,
He provideth a kindness for many generations,
And faces that he hath not seen shall bless him.
          The friendly Trees.
