|Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocotts Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.|
|Woof of the fen, ethereal gauze,|
Woven of Natures richest stuffs,
Visible heat, air-water, and dry sea,
Last conquest of the eye;
Toil of the day displayed, sun-dust,
Aërial 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,
Owlet of noon, soft-pinioned,
From heath or stubble rising without song,
Establish thy serenity oer the fields.
Henry D. Thoreau.Haze.
