First Line: I would arise and in a dream go on
Last Line: I could not slumber if the wains were out!
Subject(s): Summer


I would arise and in a dream go on --
Not very far, not very far -- and then
Lie down amid the sunny grass again,
And fall asleep till night-time or next dawn.

In sleepy self-sufficiency I'd turn;
I'd seek new comfort and be hard to please --
Far in a meadow by an isle of trees,
All summer long amid the grass and fern.

Forests would have to be all round about,
And the mead silent, and the grasses deep,
Else I might not gain such a tireless sleep!
I could not slumber if the wains were out!
