JOHN JAMES PIATT
American poet
(1835 - 1917)

The eagle nestles near the sun;
  The dove's low nest for me!--
    The eagle's on the crag; sweet one,
      The dove's in our green tree!
        For hearts that beat like thine and mine
          Heaven blesses humble earth;--
            The angels of our Heaven shall shine
              The angels of our Heart!
      - A Song of Content [Contentment]

To the quick brow Fame grudges her best wreath
  While the quick heart to enjoy it throbs beneath:
    On the dead forehead's sculptured marble shown,
      Lo, her choice of crown--its flowers are also stone.
      - The Guerdon [Fame]
