Condescend to Man
O birds, your perfect virtues bring,
Your song, your forms, your rhythmic flight,
Your manners for your heartís delight,
Nestle in hedge, or barn, or roof,
Here weave your chamber weather-proof,
Forgive our harms, and condescend
To man, as to a lubber friend,
And, generous, teach his awkward race
Courage, and probity, and grace!


-Ralph Waldo Emerson
