Excerpt from Yosemite: An Ode In fire and morning and the lily's cup, In quiet waters and the lifted sea, In his beloved's face, With eyes like those of the awakened fawn. So grew his adoration, dawn and dawn, Sunset and sunset slowly storing up Their unforgotten ﬂame And nacre in his soul's deep dwelling-pl ace, Till at the last he named thee with thy name.
