Excerpt from Studies in Verse The Prodigal. O Mother, wait until my work is done!Loose thy strong arms that draw me to thy breastTill I am ready to lie down and rest;Grudge not to me the kisses of the sun.Fear not, fond earth, thy strong love holds me fast;Thou art mine heir, - I shall be thine at last. O cousin roses! thirst not for my bloodTo dye your paling cheeks. O rank, wild grass!Clutch not with greedy fingers as I pass.And you, great hungry giants of the wood!Let not your roots for my rich juices yearn.Mine shall be yours, but you must wait your turn. O roses, grasses, trees! I am your kin, -Your prodigal blood-cousin, now grown strangeWith many wanderings through the lands of Change.You lent me of your substance, and I've beenA wasteful steward; yet I shall bring backMy whole inheritance, - you shall not lack. Divide my all amongst you; 'twas but lentTo me a while to use. Part heart and brain, Matter and force, until there shall remainOf me no shadow; I am well content.Order and chaos wage eternal strife;The end of living is to bring forth life.
