The Apology

 

Think me not unkind and rude,

That I walk alone in grove and glen;

I go to the god of the wood

To fetch his word to men.

 

Tax not my sloth that I

Fold my arms beside the brook;

Each cloud that floated in the sky

Writes a letter in my book.

 

Chide me not, laborious band,

For the idle flowers I brought;

Every aster in my hand

Goes home loaded with a thought.

 

There was never mystery,

But ’tis figured in the flowers,

Was never secret history

But birds tell it in the bowers.

 

One harvest from thy field

Homeward brought the oxen strong;

A second crop thine acres yield,

Which I gather in a song.

 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Personification:

 SENTENCE
Each cloud that floated in the sky

Writes a letter in my book

For the idle flowers I brought
Every aster in my hand

Goes home loaded with a thought

But birds tell it in the bowers
Homeward brought the oxen strong
