I Was A Giant


I witnessed myself become buried amongst the trees
I was the mountain and I was the sea
Incapable of recognizing myself I motioned
To all life for comfort and fame
I needed to know that I was alive with the rest
But that mist and fog buried me within plain sight
I had become hidden within the world around me
I was a giant

No motion
No given structure
No sound
I was a giant

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
