Poetry and the Child free pdf Excerpt from Poetry and the Child Upon this planet there dwell two strange races of people. The first is a tribe small of stature and delicate of limb, the members of which make their way into civilized society one by one, arriving among us entirely unable to look after themselves and quite ignorant of our language. Were it not that we take pity on their helplessness, they would perish miserably thousands, indeed, do so every year - but the majority are welcomed to our houses, fed and clothed by us, and, after a little while, they learn our speech and something of our habits. Yet for the brief space of their existence - a matter of about a dozen years - they remain as strangers among us. They tolerate our patronage and submit to our correction- they even court our admiration and our love. But they take little interest in the things we prize most- their ideals are not our ideals, and they seem to have acquired, in the country from which they came, a standard of values which can with difficulty be adjusted to the facts of this rough-and-tumble world. Moreover they see a universe quite different from that which is familiar to us. Our eyes are lamps in which the oil of reason more or less brightly burns to illuminate the hard and commonplace road of life- their eyes are charmed magic casements through which the moon of imagination pours, bathing the whole landscape in the light which never was on sea or land. One who was for a time a member of this little folk has described their universe in a memorable passage: The corn was orient and immortal wheat, which never should be reaped, nor was ever sown. I thought it had stood from everlasting to everlasting. The dust and stones of the street were as precious as gold- the gates were the end of the world. The green trees, when I saw them first through one of the gates, transported and ravished me- their sweetness and unusual beauty made my heart to leap, and almost mad with ecstasy, they were such strange and wonderful things. The Men! O what venerable and reverend creatures did the aged seem. Immortal Cherubims! And young men glittering and sparkling Angels, and maids strange seraphic pieces of life and beauty! Boys and girls, tumbling in the street and playing, were moving jewels. I knew not that they were born or should die- but all things abided eternally as they were in their proper places.
