Haze
By Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
 
WOOF of the fen, ethereal gauze,
Woven of Nature’s richest stuffs,
Visible heat, air-water, and dry sea,
Last conquest of the eye;
Toil of the day displayed, sun-dust,        5
Aerial surf upon the shores of earth,
Ethereal estuary, frith of light,
Breakers of air, billows of heat,
Fine summer spray on inland seas;
Bird of the sun, transparent-winged,        10
Owlet of noon, soft-pinioned,
From heath or stubble rising without song,—
Establish thy serenity o’er the fields.
