THE purity of water and the peace
Of wind-still air: the placid scent of pines,
Warming my heart as with the waft of wines;
The murmuring of hidden brooks, the fleece
Of foam-topped rivers, and the splendid space
Of sky above, with all its interlace
Of blue and white and gold, -- Oh, these to me
Do plead as plead the flutes of Arcady,
Bidding my sorry stressfulness to cease.

For then I take for truth the poet's dream:
There's naught in all the world save only good;
Little, fair children, love no parting kills,
Romance through the tree-branches soft agleam,
Beauty that lies await by field and wood,
And hero-deeds along a hundred hills!
