26. Daisies
 
OVER the shoulders and slopes of the dune 
I saw the white daisies go down to the sea, 
A host in the sunshine, an army in June, 
The people God sends us to set our hearts free. 
  
The bobolinks rallied them up from the dell,         5
The orioles whistled them out of the wood; 
And all of their singing was, "Earth, it is well!" 
And all of their dancing was, "Life, thou art good!"
