A LITTLE SONG OF LIFE, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Glad that I live am I
Last Line: Nearer the sky.
Subject(s): Life; Nature

Glad that I live am I;
That the sky is blue;
Glad for the country lanes,
And the fall of dew.
After the sun the rain;
After the rain the sun;
This is the way of life,
Till the work be done.
All that need to do,
Be we low or high,
Is to see that we grow
Nearer the sky.
