The Ravine

Poem By Charles Lamar Nelson

The ravine is just beyond the mountain-side
To give the visitor the story of his life in brief:
A study of it at twilight is the solving of a mystery
For the man who knows nature an essential truth.

Other poems of CHARLES LAMAR NELSON

America's Frontier

All is varied with flowers gay
And the soul, expressive as the sun!
Aloft, carefree, I dream dreams to be
Among the forlorn bones of war-torn frames!

The Poet

The poet has called his life a spirit
To tell the world, their soul, unfit
Lest, a part of God--intent!
Refuge, the poet flees high,--

Refuge In Oxford

Such praise, but these scenes are texts of beauty!
There's no painting half so alluring
Nor any depiction by novelist Faulkner
Can array the soul of God without words.
