First Line: On lowlands where the temples lie
Last Line: The swift brown birds by day.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Paestum, Italy; Ruins


On lowlands where the temples lie
The marsh-grass mingles with the flowers,
Only the little songs of birds
Link the unbroken hours.

So in the end, above my heart
Once like the city wild and gay,
The slow white stars will pass by night,
The swift brown birds by day.
