From the Redwood Forrest

A  L  O  H  A !
Climb the mountains 

and get their good tidings.
                                                John Muir

" This is their temple, 
vaulted high,
      And here we pause 
with reverent eye,
      With silent tongue 
and awe-struck soul;
      For here we sense 
life’s proper goal. -

To be like these, 
straight, true and fine,
To make our world, 
like theirs, a shrine;

    Sink down, O traveler, 
on your knees,
      God stands before you 
in these trees. "
                           Joseph B. Strauss, 
                                                      “The Redwoods,” 1932
