Grasses and Sand
By Alfred Battle Bealle
 
From “Peace”

I SAW blown grasses and white sand today!
On either hand blown grasses, rain-freshen’d,
And underneath, the samite peace of sand.
 
God seemed no further than my hand might reach;
And I, who long had trod my city ways,        5
Came face to face with the passion of grass and sand:
 
The passion of all of the laboring years at last,
The stable earth with its miracled leaf and bloom,
And its syllabled speech to me, “Hold fast! hope hard!”
