IN the hill-valleys, the cool valleys, valleys that I know,
You can sit all day with flowers at the edge of the snow,
Sit all day with flowers and let your soul possess
The round open quiet and a great gentleness.

In the hill-valleys, the still valleys, valleys that I love,
You can watch the clouds a-sailing in the blue sky above:
Watch the clouds a-sailing, and then come down at night
To your dear love waiting and your own home light.
