As of Forms.—

Their genesis, all genesis, They lost, all lost—for  
 they include all.—
The earth and every thing in it, The wave, the snake, the babe, the  
 landscape, the human head,
Things, faces, reminiscences, presences,  
 conditions, thoughts—sSuch tally  
  in the soul to ^and make definite a divine in‑  
 distinct, spiritual delight in  
 the sSoul.—
Of the arts, as music, poems, ar‑  
 chitecture, outlines, and the rest,  
 they are in their way to provoke  
 this delight out of the soul,
They are to seek it where it waits—  
 for I see that it always pa‑  
 tiently waits.—
Have you sought after for the inkling? Have you wandered far after your  
 inkling of
the meanings of the  
 earth? You need not wander;
Behold those forms.—
