The reticent volcano keeps
(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

The reticent volcano keeps

The reticent volcano keeps
His never slumbering plan -
Confided are his projects pink
To no precarious man.

If nature will not tell the tale
Jehovah told to her
Can human nature not survive
Without a listener?

Admonished by her buckled lips
Let every babbler be
The only secret people keep
Is Immortality.
