11 October

As we roamed Emily's house and gardens we listened to her words...Gail
NATURE is what we see,
  The Hill, the Afternoon—
Squirrel, Eclipse, the Bumble-bee,
Nay—Nature is Heaven.
Nature is what we hear,        5
The Bobolink, the Sea—
Thunder, the Cricket—
Nay,—Nature is Harmony.
Nature is what we know
But have no art to say,        10
So impotent our wisdom is
To Her simplicity.
