Emerson; a vassal of nature
“Nature satisfies the soul purely by its loveliness, and without any mixture of corporal benefit”.
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.
"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?"
This quote is explaining that nature is slow paced. It is saying that we should be more like nature and be more patient with things.
