Herman Melville - Gold in the Mountain

Gold in the mountain,
And gold in the glen,
And greed in the heart,
Heaven having no part,
And unsatisfied men.

The poem is a simple expression of mans greed for needful things. Greed is not heavenly. Simply because greed is not from heaven. Man is never satified, enough is never enough. The poem is simple, and so is the meaning. It could have been expressed much better.

R.Miller from United States
