6587
    To eat the lotus of the Nile
  And drink the poppies of Cathay.
          The Tent on the Beach.
6588
    The harp at Nature’s advent strung
  Has never ceased to play;
The song the stars of morning sung
  Has never died away.
          The Worship of Nature.
6589
    Falsehoods which we spurn to-day
  Were the truths of long ago.
          Calef in Boston.
6590
    Low stir of leaves and dip of oars
And lapsing waves on quiet shores.
          Snow Bound.
6591
    All hearts confess the saints elect,
  Who, twain in faith, in love agree,
And melt not in an acid sect
  The Christian pearl of charity!
          Snow Bound.
6592
    Life is ever lord of Death
And Love can never lose its own.
          Snow Bound.
6593
    Let the thick curtain fall;
I better know than all
How little I have gained,
How vast the unattained.
          My Triumph.
6594
    Sweeter than any sung
My songs that found no tongue;
Nobler than any fact
My wish that failed of act.


Others shall sing the song,
Others shall right the wrong,—
Finish what I begin,
And all I fail of win.
          My Triumph.
6595
    God is and all is well. 1 
          My Birthday.
