SUCH hints as untaught Nature yields! --
The calm disorder of the sea,
The straggling splendor of the fields,
The wind's gay incivility.

O workman with your conscious plan,
Compass and square are little worth;
Copy (nay, only poets can)
The artless masonry of earth.

Go watch the windy spring's carouse,
And mark the winter wonders grow, --
The graceful gracelessness of boughs,
The careless carpentry of snow!
