January 11, 1839

 in Thoreau’s Journal:



I saw the civil sun drying earth’s tears,
Her tears of joy that only faster flowed.

Fain would I stretch me by the highway side
To thaw and trickle with the melting snow,
That mingled, soul and body, with the tide,
I too may through the pores of nature flow.
