Subject(s): Castles; Cypress Trees; Flowers; Lilacs; Vision


My window is a frame for one dark tree;
A sentinel cypress focussing the eye
To fall beyond it, 'gainst a morning sky,
On one small town that nestles quietly
Against the gray-green hillside lovingly;
I hear the church bells; like a gentle sigh
The breeze moves slowly, lingeringly by,
Bringing their fuller meaning back to me.

O little town of dreams, and deep sweet bells,
That clings against a line of lilac light!
What mystery, within, of beauty swells,
Enriching all my being as I gaze,
Knowing, no matter what may come of night --
I shall possess thee now for all my days!
