Fragrant Quote for October 15th, 2012-Each and All by Ralph Waldo Emerson



Pine Trees in a Rocky Landscape
Each and All by Ralph Waldo Emerson
As I spoke, beneath my feet
The ground pine curled its pretty wreath,
Running over the club-moss burrs;
I inhaled the violet's breath;
Around me stood the oaks and firs;
Pine cones and acorns lay on the ground;
Over me soared the eternal sky
Full of light and of deity;
Again I saw, again I heard,
The rolling river, the morning bird,—
Beauty throughout my senses stole;
I yielded myself to the perfect whole.
