“Thee, loved one, do the Rocks and Woodlands Sing”
By Theodore Parker (1810–1860)
 
[From his Note-Book in the possession of Mr. Frank B. Sanborn. Composed in the Winter of 1853–4.]

THEE, loved one, do the rocks and woodlands sing,
  And thee the Pine-tree waves with in the snow;
I see thy face in earliest flowers of spring,
  And feel thy kindness in the summer’s glow;
  And, wander where I will, I inly know        5
That thou art with me still; and thy great heart
  Stands, a green pine-tree in the waste of snow,
Whereto I flee, and hold myself apart
  From all the wintry bitterness of Time;
And in thy presence I again am warm,        10
  Nor fear the tempest in Life’s stormy clime,
But unafraid confront the wildest storm:
  For thee the winter and the tempests sing,
  And through the snow I feel the violets spring.
