Acacia Inflorescence (Poem)

As I crossed the dell
O'er my pathway fell
A serene little blossom of white,
And I glanced o’erhead
Where the branches spread
From a tree of unusual height.

Then my eyes were dazed,
And my heart amazed,
So stupendous the gorgeous scene—
A majestic dome,
Where the ocean foam
Drifted over the billows of green.

O my lips were dumb—
Simply overcome!
So completely the spirit was stirred;
In this sacred place,
With its perfect grace,
Was reflected the Infinite Word.

And this soul of mine
Felt a thrill divine
From the myriad blossoms above.
And I bless'd the flow'r
Which had left its bow’r
To transport me on pinions of love.
