The World-Soul

Spring still makes spring in the mind,
When sixty years are told;
Love wakes anew in this throbbing heart,
And we are never old.
Over the winter glaciers,
I see the summer glow,
And through the wild-piled snowdrift,
The warm rosebuds below.
—Selected from The World-Soul by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Give me health and a day, and I will make the pomp of emperors ridiculous.
