"Is there such a place as Grenstone?"
Celia, hear them ask! --
Tell me, shall we share it with them?
Shall we let them breathe and bask

On the windy, sunny pasture,
Where the hill-top turns its face
Toward the valley of the mountain,
Our beloved place?

Shall we show them through our churchyard,
With its crumbling wall
Set between the dead and living?
Shall our willowed waterfall,

Blueberries and pines and bluebirds,
Be a secret we shall share? . . .
If they make but little of it,
Celia, shall we care?
