Through the Goldenrod

Through the Goldenrod

Because its myriad glimmering plumes
Like a great army’s stir and wave;
Because its golden billows blooms,
The poor man’s barren walks to lave:
Because its sun-shaped blossoms show
How souls receive the light of God,
And unto earth give back that glow I thank him for the Goldenrod.
~Lucy Larcom
