A HOLIDAY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Along the pastoral ways I go
Last Line: And I its happy guest.
Subject(s): Vacation

ALONG the pastoral ways I go,
To get the healing of the trees,
The ghostly news the hedges know;
To hive me honey like the bees,
Against the time of snow.

The common hawthorn that I see,
Beside the sunken wall astir,
Or any other blossoming tree,
Is each God's fair white gospeller,
His book upon the knee.

A gust-broken bough; a pilfered nest;
Rumors of orchard or of bin;
The thrifty things of east and west, --
The countryside becomes my Inn,
And I its happy guest.
