Men have lived and men have died
Where the peaks are glorified,

Never knowing that they trod
On the golden hills of God;

Never knowing stone and tree
Symbolize Divinity.

Eyes with money-narrowed lids
Never see the pyramids.

Sun-glint on a canyon wall,
Aspen-glow and waterfall

Are but trifles to a man
Chasing colors in a pan.

All of life and all of hope --
Sand beneath a microscope.
