When I Went Restless And Pale


Once I had a lovely garden
But the seeds were of lack
So I forgot to express gratitude
Though the trees grew big and tall
But did not bear any flower and fruit

I complained and had grumblings
And trees shed their leaves
Completely, bare they became
And I went restless and pale

In despair I gave up
And nothing more I expected
But at my surprise one day I saw
In plenty the trees bore flowers and fruits

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
