    Thus change the forms of being. Thus arise
    Races of living things, glorious in strength,
    And perish, as the quickening breath of God
    Fills them, or is withdrawn.

    Thine eyes shall see the light of distant skies:
    Yet, Cole! thy heart shall bear to Europe’s strand
    A living image of our own bright land,
    Such as upon thy glorious canvas lies;
    —William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)

    All at once
    A fresher wind sweeps by, and breaks my dream,
    And I am in the wilderness alone.
