Descriptive Poems: II. Nature and Art
Mist
Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
 
        LOW-ANCHORED cloud,
          Newfoundland air,
      Fountain-head and source of rivers,
        Dew-cloth, dream-drapery,
        And napkin spread by fays;        5
        Drifting meadow of the air,
Where bloom the daisied banks and violets
  And in whose fenny labyrinth
  The bittern booms and heron wades;
  Spirit of lakes and seas and rivers,—        10
  Bear only perfumes and the scent
  Of healing herbs to just men’s fields.
