Three children on a long, white road
That seaward runs afar;
A winding ribbon edged with flame,
So close the lilies are.

Three children on a long white road
That winds down to the sea;
Though one counts years by many more,
What matter need that be?

All three can hear the music ring
From chiming lily bells,
And yet the tawny, velvet throat
A different message tells.

For they who stand upon the path
Where youth and childhood meet,
Hear distant voices sweet and clear
That call the willing feet;

But one, who climbs the hill halfway,
Stands lingering the last,
To catch the far-off sounds that rise,
Faint echoes of the past.

Three children on a long, white road
That seaward runs afar;
A winding ribbon edged with flame,
So close the lilies are.
