Dedicated to my wife, Mary Kay O'Rourke

I listen to a concert in which so many parts are wanting. . . . I seek acquaintance with nature,—to know her moods and manners. Primitive nature is the most interesting to me. I take infinite pains to know all the phenomena of the spring, for instance, thinking that I have here the entire poem, and then, to my chagrin, I hear that it is but an imperfect copy that I possess and have read, that my ancestors have torn out many of the first leaves and grandest passages, and mutilated it in many places.
