The Poet
By Ina Coolbrith
HE walks with God upon the hills!
    And sees, each morn, the world arise
    New-bathed in light of paradise.
He hears the laughter of her rills,
    Her melodies of many voices,        5
    And greets her while his heart rejoices.
She, to his spirit undefiled,
Makes answer as a little child;
    Unveiled before his eyes she stands,
    And gives her secrets to his hands.        10
