The Lure of the Desert Land, and Other Poems free pdf Excerpt from The Lure of the Desert Land, and Other Poems "And some Orient dawn had found me Kneeling at the house of fame." Fame found Madge Morris Wagner in the blazing Colorado desert, her fingers on the pulse of Nature. Or, at least, thither sent Lippincotts of Philadelphia to find her and persuade her to speak through them to the world. And this is what she said, like all who are truly great teachers, making a text of the place and the time: To The Colorado Desert Thou brown, bare-breasted, voiceless mystery, Hot sphinx of nature, cactus, crowned, what hast thou done? Unclothed and mute as when the groans of chaos turned Thy naked burning bosom to the sun. The mountain silences have speech, the rivers sing. Thou answerest never unto anything. Pink-throated lizards pant in thy slim shade- The horned toad runs rustling in the heat- The shadowy gray coyote, born afraid, Steals to some brackish spring and laps, and prowls Away- and howls, and howls and howls and howls, Until the solitude is shaken with an added loneliness. Thy sharp mescal shoots up a giant stalk, Its century of yearning, to the sunburnt skies, And drips rare honey from the lips Of yellow waxen flowers, and dies. Some lengthwise sun-dried shapes with feet and hands And thirsty mouths pressed on the sweltering sands, Mark here and there a gruesome graveless spot Where some one drank thy scorching hotness, and is not. God must have made thee in his anger, and forgot. Not since I can remember have I heard a voice so true as this. It is like the sublime and solemn bass of St. John. It is even John the Baptist crying in the wilderness. Indeed, I doubt if you will find anything more terribly truthful and fearfully sublime this side of Job than this one lone, lorn cry from the desert.
