Lines, ‘All things are current found’
By Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
ALL things are current found
On earthly ground,
Spirits and elements
Have their descents.
Night and day, year on year,        5
High and low, far and near,
These are our own aspects,
These are our own regrets.
Ye gods of the shore,
Who abide evermore,        10
I see your far headland,
Stretching on either hand;
I hear the sweet evening sounds
From your undecaying grounds;
Cheat me no more with time,        15
Take me to your clime.
