www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - When the world was in its childhood, men looked
upon the works of Nature with a strange kind of awe. They fancied that every
thing upon the earth, in the air, or in the water, had a life like their own,
and that every sight which they saw, and every sound which they heard, was
caused by some intelligent being. All men were poets, so far as their ideas and
their modes of expression were concerned, although it is not likely that any of
them wrote poetry. This was true in regard to the Saxon in his chilly northern
home, as well as to the Greek in the sunny southland. But, while the balmy air
and clear sky of the south tended to refine men's thoughts and language, the
rugged scenery and bleak storms of the north made them uncouth, bold, and
energetic. Yet both the cultured Greek and the rude Saxon looked upon Nature
with much the same eyes, and there was a strange resemblance in their manner of
thinking and speaking.

They saw, that, in all the phenomena which took
place around them, there was a certain system or regularity, as if these were
controlled by some law or by some superior being; and they sought, in their
simple poetical way, to account for these appearances. They had not yet learned
to measure the distances of the stars, nor to calculate the motions of the
earth. The changing of the seasons was a mystery which they scarcely sought to
penetrate. But they spoke of these occurrences in a variety of ways, and
invented many charming, stories with reference to them, not so much with a view
towards accounting for the mystery, as towards giving expression to their
childlike but picturesque ideas.
