Home of God, and Eden's fauna!
Climate woven out of sunbeams;
Silver mountains gray with snow-gleams;
Zephyrs soft as human touches;
Every woman's rank, a duchess;
Atmosphere, a brooding spirit;
Silence deep enough to hear it;
Universal ether wreathing
Everything that lives by breathing;
Spirit-arms with love embracing,
Through the gold and silver, lacing,
Till we sink into the coma
Of the air, and bloom's aroma,
And the happiness that fills us,
Makes us care not if it kills us!
