Let me go where’er I will. By: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Let me go where’er I will,

     I hear a sky-born music still:

     It sounds from all things old,

       It sounds from all things young,

¬† ¬† ¬†From all that’s fair, from all that’s foul,

       Peals out a cheerful song.

     It is not only in the rose,

       It is not only in the bird,

     Not only where the rainbow glows,

       Nor in the song of woman heard,

     But in the darkest, meanest things

     There alway, alway something sings.

¬† ¬† ¬†‘Tis not in the high stars alone,

       Nor in the cup of budding flowers,

¬† ¬† ¬†Nor in the redbreast’s mellow tone,

       Nor in the bow that smiles in showers,

     But in the mud and scum of things

     There alway, alway something sings.

Old things need not be therefore true. By: Arthur Hugh Clough.

 Old things need not be therefore true,

     O brother men, nor yet the new;

     Ah! still awhile the old thought retain,

     And yet consider it again!

     We! what do we see? each a space

     Of some few yards before his face;

     Does that the whole wide plan explain?

     Ah, yet consider it again!

     Alas! the great world goes its way,

     And takes its truth from each new day;

     They do not quit, nor can retain,

     Far less consider it again.
