The verses in this volume reflect Man’s appreciation and understanding of nature and nature’s work—the wonder of the Creation and of the Creator—and Man’s place in it. Most of the authors and their works will be familiar.

All are in the public domain.

Oklahoma Sun.

Now shine the starry hosts of light.
Gazing on earth with golden eyes;
Bright guardians of the blue-browed night!
What are ye in your native skies?

—from “An Evening Hymn”, Thomas Miller, Basket Maker.
