Example text

The leaves are all dead on the ground, Save those that the oak is keeping To ravel them one by one And let them go scraping and creepmg Out over the crusted snow, When others are sleeping. ' Ah, when to the heart of man Was it ever less than a treason To go with the drift of things, To )'leld with a grace to reason, And bow and accept the end Of a love or a season? [43] NORTH OF BOSTON MENDING WALL Something there is that doesn't love a wall, That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it, And spills the upper boulders in the sun; And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.

I thought of questions that have no reply, And would have turned to toss the grass to dry; [81] But he turned first, and led my eye to look At a taJl tuft of flowers beside a brook, A leaping tongue of bloom the scythe had spared Beside a reedy brook the scythe had bared. The mower in the dew had loved them thus, By leaving them to flourish, not for us, Nor yeL to draw one thought of ours to him, But from sheer morning gladness at the brim. The butterfly and I had lit upon, Nevertheless, a message from the dawn, That made me hear the wakening birds around, And hear his long scythe whispering to the ground, And feel a spirit kindred to my own; So that henceforth I worked no more alone; But glad with him, I worked as with his aid, And weary, sought at noon with him the shade; And dreaming, as it were, held brotherly speech With one whose thought I had not hoped to reach.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white, Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night; And make us happy in the happy bees, The swarm dilating round the perfect trees. And make us happy in the darting bird That suddenly above the bees is heard, The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill, And off a blossom in mid air stands still.
