"Oh, our manhood's prime vigor! No Spirit feels
Not a muscle is stopped in its playing nor sinew untraced.
Oh, the wild joys of living! the leaping from rock up to rock,
The strong rending of boughs from the fir-tree, the cool silver
Of the plunge in a pool's living water, the hunt of the bear, . .
And the sleep in the dried river-channel where bulrushes tell
That the water was wont to go warbling so softly and well.
How good is man's life, the mere living."
