MOUNTAIN SCENE, SAN JUAN COUNTY, COLORADO.]

FOOTNOTES:

[A] Composed at St. Anthony's hospital, Denver, Colo., from whence the author was led hopelessly blind.

Nature's Child.

I love to tread the solitudes,
The forests and the trackless woods,
Where nature, undisturbed by man,
Pursues her voluntary plan.

Where nature's chemistry distills
The fountains and the laughing rills,
I love to quaff her sparkling wine,
And breathe the fragrance of the pine.

I love to dash the crystal dews
From floral shapes of varied hues,
And interweave the modest white
Of columbine in garlands bright.

I love to lie within the shade,
On grassy couch, by nature made,
And listen to the warbling notes
From her fair songsters' feathered throats.

And freed from artificial wants,
I love to dwell in nature's haunts,
And by the mountain's crystal lake

As he really wanted to do something he enjoys, Crawford tried writing instead and his books have topped Amazon's charts ever since. As our Author of the Day, Crawford chats about why he enjoys science-fiction and how it would probably take an alien invasion for humans to discover our humanity.
