THE OAK ON THE MOUNTAIN'S SUMMIT



       Oh, mountain monarch, at whose feet I stand, -
       Clouds to adorn thy brow, skies clasp thy hand, -
       Nature divine, in harmony profound,
       With peaceful presence hath begirt thee round.

       And thou, majestic oak, from yon high place
       Guard'st thou the earth, asleep in night's embrace, -
       And from thy lofty summit, pouring down
       Thy sheltering shade, her noonday glories crown?

       Whate'er thy mission, mountain sentinel,
       To my lone heart thou art a power and spell;
       A lesson grave, of life, that teacheth me
       To love the Hebrew figure of a tree.

       Faithful and patient be my life as thine;
       As strong to wrestle with the storms of time;
       As deeply rooted in a soil of love;
       As grandly rising to the heavens above.
