Excerpt from In Old Quivira

"In all this crowded universe
There is but one stupendous Word;
And huge and rough, or trimmed and terse,
Its fragments build and undergird
The songs and stories we rehearse.

"There is no tree that rears its crest,
No fern or flower that cleaves the sod,
No bird that sings above its nest,
But tries to speak this

Overview

Excerpt from In Old Quivira

"In all this crowded universe
There is but one stupendous Word;
And huge and rough, or trimmed and terse,
Its fragments build and undergird
The songs and stories we rehearse.

"There is no tree that rears its crest,
No fern or flower that cleaves the sod,
No bird that sings above its nest,
But tries to speak this Word of God,
And dies when it has done its best.

"And this Great Word, all words above,
Including, yet defying all -
Soft as the crooning of a dove,
And strong as the Archangel's call -
Means only this - means only Love!"

- Holland.
