With eyes hand-arched he looks into
The morning's face; then turns away
With truant feet, all wet with dew,
Out for a holiday.

The hill brook sings; incessant stars,
Foam-fashioned, on its restless breast;
And where he wades its water-bars
Its song is happiest.

A comrade of the chinquapin,
He looks into its knotty eyes
And sees its heart; and, deep within,
Its soul that makes him wise.

The wood-thrush knows and follows him,
Who whistles up the birds and bees;
And round him all the perfumes swim
Of woodland loam and trees.

Where'er he pass the silvery springs'
Foam-people sing the flowers awake;
And sappy lips of bark-clad things
Laugh ripe each berried brake.

His touch is a companionship;
His word an old authority:
He comes, a lyric on his lip,
The woodboy--Poesy.

O withered wood!O days, whom Death makes comrades of!Where are

October (far Off A Wind Blew, And I Heard)
Far off a wind blew, and I heard Wild echoes of the woods reply--The herald of some royal word, With bannered trumpet, blown on high, Meseemed then passed me by:Who summoned marvels there to meet, With pomp, upon a cloth of gold;Where berries of the bittersweet, That, splitting, showed the coals they hold, Sowed garnets through the wold:Where, under tents of maples, seeds Of smooth carnelian, oval red,The spice-bush spangled: where, like beads, The dogwood's rounded rubies--fed With fire--blazed and bled.And there I saw amid the
