To Cole, The Painter, Departing For Europe

Rating: 2.5

A SONNET.


Thine eyes shall see the light of distant skies:
Yet, COLE! thy heart shall bear to Europe's strand
A living image of thy native land,
Such as on thine own glorious canvas lies;
Lone lakes--savannas where the bison roves--
Rocks rich with summer garlands--solemn streams--
Skies, where the desert eagle wheels and screams--

Spring bloom and autumn blaze of boundless groves.
