Stanzas: ‘Of the heaven is generation’
By Julia Ward Howe (1819–1910)
OF the heaven is generation:
Fruition in the deep earth lies:
And where the twain have broadest blending,
The stateliest growths of life arise.
Set, then, thy root in earth more firmly:        5
Raise thy head erect and free:
And spread thy loving arms so widely,
That heaven and earth shall meet in thee.
