Life is a festival only to the wise. Songs can the tempest still, Scattered on the stormy air, Mold the year to fair increase, And bring in poetic peace. It is but the other day that the brave Lovejoy gave his breast to the bullets of a mob, for the rights of free speech and opinion, and died when it was better not to live. There is somewhat in great actions, which does not allow us to go behind them. To every foot its antipode; Each color with its counter glowed: To every tone beat answering tones, Higher or graver; Flavor gladly blends with flavor; Leaf answers leaf upon the bough; And match the paired cotyledons.

Merlin I Poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson

emerson merlin

The essence of greatness is the perception that virtue is enough. Heroism, like Plotinus, is almost ashamed of its body. He shall not his brain encumber With the coil of rhythm and number; But, leaving rule and pale forethought, He shall aye climb For his rhyme. Songs can the tempest still, Scattered on the stormy air, Mould the year to fair increase, And bring in poetic peace. Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, Drink the wild air's salubrity: When the star Canope shines in May, Shepherds are thankful and nations gay. Merlin's blows are strokes of fate, Chiming with the forest tone, When boughs buffet boughs in the wood; Chiming with the gasp and moan Of the ice-imprisoned flood; With the pulse of manly hearts; With the voice or orators; With the din of city arts; With the cannonade of wars; With the marches of the brave; And prayers of might from martyrs' cave.

Merlin by Ralph Waldo Emerson

emerson merlin

There are open hours When the God's will sallies free, And the dull idiot might see The flowing fortunes of a thousand years; Sudden, at unawares, Self-moved, fly-to the doors, Nor sword of angels could reveal What they conceal. He shall not his brain encumber With the coil of rhythm and number; But, leaving rule and pale forethought, He shall aye climb For his rhyme. The kingly bard Must smite the chords rudely and hard, As with hammer or with mace, That they may render back Artful thunder that conveys Secrets of the solar track, Sparks of the supersolar blaze. The kingly bard Must smite the chords rudely and hard, As with hammer or with mace; That they may render back Artful thunder, which conveys Secrets of the solar track, Sparks of the supersolar blaze. Things more cheerly live and go, What time the subtle mind Sings aloud the tune whereto Their pulses beat, And march their feet, And their members are combined.

Merlin's Song

emerson merlin

“Pass in, pass in,” the angels say, “Into the upper doors, Nor count compartments of the floors, But mount to paradise By the stairway of surprise. Merlin's blows are strokes of fate, Chiming with the forest tone, When boughs buffet boughs in the wood; Chiming with the gasp and moan Of the ice-imprisoned flood; With the pulse of manly hearts; With the voice of orators; With the din of city arts; With the cannonade of wars; With the marches of the brave; And prayers of might from martyrs' cave.

It is a height to which common duty can very well attain, to suffer and to dare with solemnity. By Sybarites beguiled, He shall no task decline; Merlin's mighty line Extremes of nature reconciled, — Bereaved a tyrant of his will, And made the lion mild. It does not ask to dine nicely, and to sleep warm. The animals are sick with love, Lovesick with rhyme; Each with all propitious Time Into chorus wove.

Merlin's Song. II. May

emerson merlin

Whatever outrages have happened to men may befall a man again; and very easily in a republic, if there appear any signs of a decay of religion. Thou thyself must part At last from all thy garlands, pleasures, triumphs, And prove thy fortitude what then 't will do. Merlin's blows are strokes of fate, Chiming with the forest tone, When boughs buffet boughs in the wood; Chiming with the gasp and moan Of the ice-imprisoned hood; With the pulse of manly hearts; With the voice of orators; With the din of city arts; With the cannonade of wars; With the marches of the brave; And prayers of might from martyrs' cave. Who that sees the meanness of our politics, but inly congratulates Washington that he is long already wrapped in his shroud, and for ever safe; that he was laid sweet in his grave, the hope of humanity not yet subjugated in him? Merlin by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Say not, the chiefs who first arrive Usurp the seats for which all strive; The forefathers this land who found Failed to plant the vantage-ground; Ever from one who comes to-morrow Men wait their good and truth to borrow. Light's far furnace shines, Smelting balls and bars, Forging double stars, Glittering twins and trines.

EMERSON

emerson merlin

These men fan the flame of human love, and raise the standard of civil virtue among mankind. It may calm the apprehension of calamity in the most susceptible heart to see how quick a bound nature has set to the utmost infliction of malice. Strangers may present themselves at any hour, and in whatever number; the master has amply provided for the reception of the men and their animals, and is never happier than when they tarry for some time. Subtle rhymes, with ruin rife Murmur in the hour of life, Sung by the Sisters as they spin; In perfect time and measure they Build and unbuild our echoing clay. What shall it say, then, to the sugar-plums and cats'-cradles, to the toilet, compliments, quarrels, cards, and custard, which rack the wit of all society. He shall not his brain encumber With the coil of rhythm and number; But, leaving rule and pale forethought, He shall aye climb For his rhyme. The kingly bard Must smile the chords rudely and hard, As with hammer or with mace; That they may render back Artful thunder, which conveys Secrets of the solar track, Sparks of the supersolar blaze.

Merlin

emerson merlin

In the heart of the music peals a strain Which only angels hear; Whether it waken joy or rage, Hushed myriads hark in vain, Yet they who hear it shed their age, And take their youth again. No jingling serenader's art, Nor tinkle of piano strings, Can make the wild blood start In its mystic springs. Emerson used for the motto to “Considerations by the Way” in the Conduct of Life, in connection with the preceding one, they never appear together in the verse-books. Subtle rhymes, with ruin rife Murmur in the hour of life, Sung by the Sisters as they spin; In perfect time and measure they Build and unbuild our echoing clay. Kiss thy lord, And live with all the freedom you were wont. If accepted, your analysis will be added to this page of American Poems.

Poems (Emerson, 1847)/Merlin 1

emerson merlin

There are open hours When the God's will sallies free, And the dull idiot might see The flowing fortunes of a thousand years;— Sudden, at unawares, Self-moved, fly-to the doors Nor sword of angels could reveal What they conceal. Human virtue demands her champions and martyrs, and the trial of persecution always proceeds. But wilt thou measure all thy road, See thou lift the lightest load. In the elder English dramaetcher, there is a constant recognition of gentility, as if a noble behaviour were as easily marked in the society of their age, as color is in our American population. I Of Merlin wise I learned a song,— Sing it low or sing it loud, It is mightier than the strong, And punishes the proud. To every foot its antipode; Each color with its counter glowed: To every tone beat answering tones, Higher or graver; Flavor gladly blends with flavor; Leaf answers leaf upon the bough; And match the paired cotyledons. Forms more cheerly live and go, What time the subtle mind Sings aloud the tune whereto Their pulses beat, And march their feet, And their members are combined.

We tell our charities, not because we wish to be praised for them, not because we think they have great merit, but for our justification. No, I will take no leave. From the Chateau Series at Avalon at Sienna 60s, Emerson is elegant, functional and flexible by design.
