The Park

by Ralph Waldo Emerson
The prosperous and beautiful
  To me seem not to wear
The yoke of conscience masterful,
  Which galls me everywhere.

I cannot shake off the god;
  On my neck he makes his seat;
I look at my face in the glass,—
  My eyes his eyeballs meet.

Enchanters! Enchantresses!
  Your gold makes you seem wise;
The morning mist within your grounds
  More proudly rolls, more softly lies.

Yet spake yon purple mountain,
  Yet said yon ancient wood,
That Night or Day, that Love or Crime,
  Leads all souls to the Good.
