Oh, for the solitude of space!
Green fields that curve and dip and rise
Dotted with daisies and queen's lace
Shaded by trees that reach the skies.
Where I can set my caged soul free
And watch it soar from off the ground,
The while the earthiness of me
Merges into the grasses round.
Till the clean beauty of the scene
Fills all my empty aching lack
And I am part of the vast green
And cannot call my free soul back.
Then will you look for me in vain,
Though I am there beneath your feet.
And when I smile at sun or rain
Will say, right here, just smell how sweet!
