EDGAR LEE MASTERS
American poet
(1869 - 1950)

I have known the silence of the stars and of the sea.
  And the silence of the city when it pauses,
    And the silence of a man and a maid,
      And the silence for which music alone finds the word.
      - [Silence]

But here by the mill the castled clouds
  Mocked themselves in the dizzy water.
      - Spoon River Anthology--Isaiah Beethoven
        [Clouds]

The soul of the river had entered my soul,
  And the gathered power of my soul was moving
    So swiftly, it seemed to be at rest
      Under cities of cloud and under
        Spheres of silver and changing worlds--
          Until I saw a flash of trumpets
            Above the battlements over Time!
      - Spoon River Anthology--Isaiah Beethoven
        [Soul]

The dust's for crawling, heaven's for flying,
  Wherefore, O Soul, whose wings are grown,
    Soar upward to the sun!
      - Spoon River Anthology--Julian Scott [Soul]

Such phantom blossoms palely shining
  Over the lifeless boughs of Time.
      - Spoon River Anthology--Russell Kincaid
        [Time]

O maternal earth which rocks the fallen leaf to sleep!
      - Spoon River Anthology--Washington McNeely
        [Nature]
