Nature

              "But if a man would be alone, let him look at the stars."


Admonishing smile

                comic

            or mourning

to cast off

years

    of decorum

the eye

           an artist

a shaded globe

             pickerel-weed's

plain virtue

          suggesting

grace &

        motion

in language

         transparent

    travelers

         with closed eyes


(from The Portable Emerson)
