The Undiscovered Country, Pages 26 & 27

Posted by
Gary Hart (California, United States) on 3 November 2009 in Landscape & Rural.

I'm off to Yosemite and then Southern Utah. While I'm away I'll share images and poetry from my book, The Undiscovered Country. Enjoy!

The Apology, Ralph Waldo Emerson

Think me not unkind and rude,
That I walk alone in grove and glen;
I go to the god of the wood
To fetch his word to men.

Tax not my sloth that I
Fold my arms beside the brook;
Each cloud that floated in the sky
Writes a letter in my book.

Chide me not, laborious band,
For the idle flowers I brought;
Every aster in my hand
Goes home loaded with a thought.

There was never mystery,
But 'tis figured in the flowers,
Was never secret history,
But birds tell it in the bowers.

One harvest from thy field
Homeward brought the oxen strong;
A second crop thine acres yield,
Which I gather in a song.

thanks for the poem - it adds a great tough to the photo! and the photo itself is a very well though out and executed one! a "reverse" view if i can call it that where the mountains are a reflection rather than towering over the scene as it would be the case in reality... truly a fantastic idea!
