Description Earth SongI heard the spring wind whisperAbove the brushwood fire,The world is made foreverOf transport and desire.I am the breath of being,The primal urge of things;I am the whirl of star dust,I am the lift of wings.I am the splendid impulseThat comes before the thought,The joy and exaltationWherein the life is caught.Across the sleeping furrowsI call the buried seed,And blade and bud and blossomAwaken at my need.Within the dying ashesI blow the sacred spark,And make the hearts of loversTo leap against the dark.I heard the spring light whisperAbove the dancing stream,The world is made foreverIn likeness of a dream.I am the law of planets,I am the guide of man;The evening and the morningAre fashioned to my plan.I tint the dawn with crimson,I tinge the sea with blue;My track is in the desert,My trail is in the dew.I paint the hills with colour,And in my magic domeI light the star of eveningTo steer the traveller home.Within the house of being,I feed the lamp of truthWith tales of ancient wisdomAnd prophecies of youth.I heard the spring rain murmurAbove the roadside flower,The world is made foreverIn melody and power.I keep the rhythmic measureThat marks the steps of time,And all my toil is fashionedTo symmetry and rhyme.I plow the untilled upland,I ripe the seeding grass,And fill the leafy forestWith music as I pass.I hew the raw, rough graniteTo loveliness of line,And when my work is finished,Behold, it is divine!I am the master-builderIn whom the ages trust.I lift the lost perfectionTo blossom from the dust.Then Earth to them made answer,As with a slow refrainBorn of the blended voicesOf wind and sun and rain,This is the law of beingThat links the threefold chain:The life we give to beautyReturns to us again. poetry by: Bliss Carman (1861-1929) ourjrnyThe Heart Within the ArtCopyright Sharon Mau 2010My images do not belong to the public domain.No form of reproduction, includ

"What keeps me alive is found between the images, between the words, between thought, the emptiness of feeling, and in the emptiness of the body... there arises the fullness and significance of life... " ~ Basarab Nicolescu
