Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882).  The Complete Works.  1904.
Vol. IX. Poems
 
V. Appendix
Monadnoc from Afar
 
DARK flower of Cheshire garden,
  Red evening duly dyes
Thy sombre head with rosy hues
  To fix far-gazing eyes.
Well the Planter knew how strongly        5
  Works thy form on human thought;
I muse what secret purpose had he
  To draw all fancies to this spot. 1
 
Note 1. It is strange that Mr. Emerson never printed this little poem. It probably was written not much later than “Monadnoc.” [back]
