Humility
By Charles R. Murphy
 
From “Growth”

OPEN the doors of temples, scorn
Their veils! Yet in the flight of bird on sea,
In the fall of leaf from tree,
In the green patient spears of grain, in the torn
Sides of mountains where some verdure clings—        5
In all these things—
We have enough to brood on till we be
Ready and humble as the corn.
