Love makes us almost sacred in our own eyes; it is the life of another that we revere within us; then and so begins for us the cruelest trouble of all.

And give us eyes, that we may see
Beneath the shopman's clumsy dress
The splendor of humanity!“

Trees and Other Poems (1914), Delicatessen, Context: O Carpenter of Nazareth, Whose mother was a village maid, Shall we, Thy children, blow our breath In scorn on any humble trade? Have pity on our foolishness And give us eyes, that we may see Beneath the shopman's clumsy dress The splendor of humanity!
