    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.

    Often faltering feet
Come surest to the goal.
          Reliance.

    The blessing of earth is toil.
          The Toiling of Felix.

    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.
 
Henry Cuyler Bunner. (1855–1896)

      Love must kiss that mortal’s eyes
Who hopes to see fair Arcady.
No gold can buy you entrance there;
But beggared Love may go all bare—
No wisdom won with weariness;
But Love goes in with Folly’s dress—
No fame that wit could ever win;
But only Love may lead Love in.
          The Way to Arcady. 1 
8082
    Ah woe is me, through all my days
  Wisdom and wealth I both have got,
And fame and name and great men’s praise;
  But Love, ah! Love I have it not.
          The Way to Arcady.
