And thus it is my fancy blends
     The near at hand and far and rare;
And while the same horizon bends
     Above the silver-sprinkled hair
Which flashed the light of morning skies
     On childhood's wonder-lifted eyes,
Within its round of sea and skyand field,
     Earth wheels with all her zones, the Kosmos stands revealed.
