Excerpt from The Mountain

Does not the oracular tree whisper to each ear the answer to the prayer it wants to hear? To the shepherd boy in the raptures of love, - love only, as when the Milk-white thorn that scents the evening gale, breathes out for him his tender tale to the poet, dreaming, it speaks of beauty and ecstasy, a wave of that sea of glittering globules which plays forever before his soul, a ?ash of light in the infinite and eternal night; to the savant, armed with microscope, it gives an invitation, beckoning forward to explore and con template forever; and to the pious devotee, in the fervors of devotion, is it not a stream of consecrated glory, which heaven ardent Opens, and lets down on man in audience with the Deity?
