Best Poem of John Hall Wheelock


Grasshopper, your fairy song
And my poem alike belong
To the dark and silent earth
From which all poetry has birth;
All we say and all we sing
Is but as the murmuring
Of that drowsy heart of hers
When from her deep dream she stirs:
If we sorrow, or rejoice,
You and I are but her voice.

Deftly does the dust express
In mind her hidden loveliness,
And from her cool silence stream
The cricket's cry and Dante's dream;
For the earth that breeds the trees
Breeds cities too, and symphonies.
Equally her beauty flows
Into a savior, ...

Read the full of Earth


Life burns us up like fire,
   And Song goes up in flame:
The radiant body smoulders
   To the ashes whence it came.

Out of things it rises
   With a mouth that laughs and sings,
Backward it fades and falters
   Into the char of things.
