Ralph Waldo Emerson’s “Brahma” now up and annotated on Poetry Genius
In the poem, Emerson assumes the persona of the Hindu god of creation, speaking from Brahma’s point of view.

Far or forgot to me is near;
Shadow and sunlight are the same;
The vanished gods to me appear;
And one to me are shame and fame.
