BAYARD RUSKIN
American civil-rights activist
(1910? - 1987)

I've seen the Rhine with younger wave,
  O'er every obstacle to rave.
    I see the Rhine in his native wild
      Is still a mighty mountain child.
      - A Tour on the Continent--Via Mala
        [Rhine River]

Shadows are in reality, when the sun is shining, the most conspicuous thing in a landscape, next to the highest lights.
      - Painting [Shadows]

Methought little space 'tween those hills intervened,
  But nearer,--more lofty,--more shaggy they seemed.
    The clouds o'er their summits they calmly did rest,
      And hung on the ether's invisible breast;
        Than the vapours of earth they seemed purer, more bright,--
          Oh! could they be clouds? 'Twas the necklace of night.
      - The Iteriad--Sunset at Low-Wind [Sunset]

      - The True and Beautiful--The Sky [Sky]

The scupltor does not work for the anatomist, but for the common observer of life and nature.
      - True and Beautiful--Sculpture [Sculpture]
