“the happiest man is he who learns from nature the lessons of worship.”

  • That can be interpreted as that the man who knows nature is closer to God, and that nature can bring man closer to what is esoteric.


In this short poem, Emerson is speaking to himself about nature. He speaks about how other peoples idea of nature is different than his own.

And while the ideas of nature being a fraud are going through his head, He realizes how calming nature is.

Berrying

"May be true what I had heard,

Earth's a howling wilderness

Truculent with fraud and force,"

Said I, strolling through the pastures,

And along the riverside.

Caught among the blackberry vines,

Feeding on the Ethiops sweet,

Pleasant fancies overtook me:

I said, "What influence me preferred

Elect to dreams thus beautiful?"

The vines replied, "And didst thou deem

No wisdom to our berries went?"
