"The moon now rises to her absolute rule"
The moon now rises to her absolute rule
And the husbandman and hunter
Acknowledge her for their mistress
Asters and golden reign in the fields
And the life everlasting withers not
The fields are reaped and shorn of their pride
But an inward verdure still crowns them;
The thistle scatters its down on the pool
And yellow leaves clothe the river-
And nought disturbs the serious life of men.
But behind the sheaves and under the sod
There lurks a ripe fruit which the reapers have not gathered,
The true harvest of the year- the boreal fruit.
Which it bears forever ,
With fondness annually watering it and maturing it.
But man never severs the stalk
Which bears palatable fruit.
In the poem," The moon now rises to her absolute rule", author Henry David Thoreau displays the message that even though man can contain mother nature, mother nature is superior and we should acknowledge that. " The moon now rises to her absolute rule, And the husbandman and hunter Acknowledge her for their mistress.", "The true harvest of the year- the boreal fruit Which it bears forever, With fondness annually watering and maturing it. But man never severs the stalk Which bears this palatable fruit." These lines basically proving how mother nature gives us fruit and vegetation yet we recognize we should not dismember it for our own but respect it.
