The Solitary Woodsman
When the grey lake-water rushes
Past the dripping alder-bushes,
And the bodeful autumn wind
In the fir-tree weeps and hushes, --
O Child of Nations, giant-limbed,
Who stand'st among the nations now
Unheeded, unadored, unhymned,
With unanointed brow, --
The Skater
My glad feet shod with the glittering steel
I was the god of the wing├Ęd heel.

The hills in the far white sky were lost;
The Iceberg
I was spawned from the glacier,
A thousand miles due north
Beyond Cape Chidley;
And the spawning,
In An Old Barn
Tons upon tons the brown-green fragrant hay
O'erbrims the mows beyond the time-warped eaves,
Up to the rafters where the spider weaves,
Though few flies wander his secluded way.

He apparently wrote a poem called " The Unsleeping" , but I can't find it anywhere except An Anthology of Verse edited by Roberta A. Charlesworth and Dennis Lee. Great poem.
