Adam and Eve knew such perfection once,
God's finger within the cloud, and at the ground
Nothing yet springtime, not anything else at all.
But in our fallen nation the place the blood hunts
For blood, and rises on the looking sound,
What can we be aware of of lasting because the fall?
Who has now not, within the oil and warmth of youth,
Thought of the flourishing of the almond tree,
The grasshopper, and the failing of desire,
And notion his tongue may perhaps pierce the secrecy
Of the six-pointed starlight, and may choir
A secret-voweled, unutterable truth?

Fair game & did not ﬁgure to miss from such distance Nor did I, that wooden bullet ﬂying true To strike tom turkey Flush & he ﬂapping up with a gobble & they winging off unhurt, alas.

This morning climbed a large round hillock Set back some half-mile or so From the river bluffs, wishing to rise above & scout the country For sign of the Expedition ahead & possibly to recognize once & for all The location of these Great Rocky Mountains Long promised.
