Subject(s): Chelsea, Vermont


I have known villages where brooding hills
Keep everlasting watch through tranquil days;
Whose streets, green-arched, are quiet cloistered ways;
Whose dew-drenched nights pervading magic fills;
Where lavishly the moon her floodlight spills—
A spot like this, with cool sequestered ways,
The fever from life's buffeting allays
And soothes the pain-racked heart, bruised by life's ills.

Vermont still holds such havens of content.
Of these is Chelsea whose white homes house those
Who find life's beauty in these ways apart;
Her spires still beckon to the firmament,
Her gardens still are redolent of rose,
Verbena, marigold and bleeding heart.
