EARTH’S HAPPY SMILE

Creation, which had groan’d in travail-pangs
Together with her children until now,
Ceased from her groaning.  Long-forgotten smiles,
The smiles of her sweet childhood’s innocence,
Stole o’er her happy face.  The wilderness
Rejoiced, and blossom’d as the rose.  The curse,
Which for six thousand years had sear’d the heart
Of nature, was repeal’d.  And where the thorn
Perplex’d the glens, and prickly briers the hills,
Now, for the Word so spake and it was done,
The fir-tree rear’d its stately obelisk,
The cedar waved its arms of peaceful shade,
The vine embraced the elm, and myrtles flower’d
Among the fragrant orange-groves.  No storms
Vex’d the serene of heaven:  but genial mists,
Such as in Eden drench’d the willing soil,
Nurtured all lands with richer dews than balm. 
Earth breathed her thanks.  Rivers of living waters
Broke from a thousand unsuspected springs;
And gushing cataracts, like that call’d forth
On Horeb by the rod of Amram’s son,
Gladden’d the mountain slopes, and coursed adown
The startled defiles, till the crystal wealth,
Gathered in what was once an arid vale,
A lake of azure and of silver shone,
A mirror for the sun and moon and stars.
