February 1970



Meditation On Mountains

I have an understanding with the hills
At evening when the slanted radiance fills
their hollows, and the great minds let them be
And they are quiet and look down at me,
Oh, then I see the patience in their eyes
Out of the centuries that made them wise.
They lend me hoarded memory and I learn
Their thoughts of granite and their whims of fern,
and why a dream of forests must endure
Tho every tree be slain: and how pure
invisible beauty has a word so brief.
A flower can say it on a shaken leaf.
But few may even snare it in a song,
Tho for the quest a life is not too long.

- Grace Hazard Conkling.
