| Men have dulled their eyes with sin,|
And dimmed the light of heaven with doubt,
And built their temple-walls to shut thee in,
And framed their iron creeds to shut thee out.
| God of the open Air.|
| Often faltering feet|
Come surest to the goal.
| The blessing of earth is toil.|
| The Toiling of Felix.|
| He that planteth a tree is the servant of God,|
He provideth a kindness for many generations,
And faces that he hath not seen shall bless him.
| The friendly Trees.|
|Henry Cuyler Bunner. (18551896)|
| Love must kiss that mortals eyes|
Who hopes to see fair Arcady.
No gold can buy you entrance there;
But beggared Love may go all bare
No wisdom won with weariness;
But Love goes in with Follys dress
No fame that wit could ever win;
But only Love may lead Love in.
| The Way to Arcady. 1 |
| Ah woe is me, through all my days|
Wisdom and wealth I both have got,
And fame and name and great mens praise;
But Love, ah! Love I have it not.
| The Way to Arcady.|
