George Willis Cooke, comp.  The Poets of Transcendentalism: An Anthology.  1903.
By Caroline Sturgis Tappan (1819–1888)
I LIE upon the earth and feed upon the sky,
Drink in the soft, deep blue, falling from on high.
Walnut boughs, all steeped in gold, quiver to and fro;
Winds like spirits murmur, as through the air they go,
My soul is filled with joy and holy faith and love,        5
For noble friends on earth and angels pure above.
