Nature, the gentlest mother,
Impatient of no child,
The feeblest or the waywardest,
Her admonition mild
.
In forest and the hill
By traveller is heard,
Restraining rampant squirrel
Or too impetuous bird.
.
How fair her conversation,
A summer afternoon, --
Her household, her assembly;
And when the sun goes down
.
Her voice among the aisles
Incites the timid prayer
Of the minutest cricket,
The most unworthy flower.
.
When all the children sleep
She turns as long away
As will suffice to light her lamps;
Then, bending from the sky
.
With infinite affection
And infiniter care,
Her golden finger on her lip,
Wills silence everywhere.
