Bliss Carman, "Earth Voices"

"Earth Voices"

"I heard the spring light whisper
Above the dancing stream,
'The world is made forever
In likeness of a dream.

 I am the law of planets,
 I am the guide of man;
 The evening and the morning
 Are fashioned to my plan.

I tint the dawn with crimson,
I tinge the sea with blue;
My track is in the desert,
My trail is in the dew.

I paint the hills with color,
And in my magic dome
I light the star of evening
To steer the traveler home.

Within the house of being,
I feed the lamp of truth
With tales of ancient wisdom
And prophecies of youth.'"

Bliss Carman, "Earth Voices"

Hat tip to Lynne for this poem.
