Rhymes of the Universe

Longfellow


"And Nature, the old Nurse, took

The child upon her knee,

Saying, 'Here is a story book

Thy father hath written for thee.


"'Come wander with me,' she said,

'Into regions yet untrod,

And read what is still unread

In the Manuscripts of God.'


"And he wandered away and away

With Nature, the dear old Nurse,

Who sang to him night and day

The rhymes of the universe."
