"Exaltation"

Random Poetry List XL

O leaf upon the highest bough,
The poet of the woods art thou
   To whom alone 'tis given—
The farthest from thy place of birth—
To hold communion with the earth
   Nor lose the light of heaven.

O leaf upon the topmost height,
Amid thy heritage of light
   Unsheltered by a shade,
'Tis thine the loneliness to know
That leans for sympathy below
   Nor finds what it hath made.

John B. Tabb (American, 1845-1909)
