PASTORAL, by            
First Line: Look out, my love, across the quiet scene
Last Line: To lay your hand in mine, for love is ours.
Subject(s): Yale University


Look out, my love, across the quiet scene;
The sun, just lost behind the purple hills,
Makes rosy all the West; the soft pines lean
Together whispering as the night breeze wills.

Here in the lilacs by the cottage door
The thrush's rippling love notes swell and cease;
And drowsy bees, with day's last golden store,
Hum off into the universal peace.

The air that fans your cheek is redolent
With all the honeyed breath of countless flowers.
Turn now and look into my heart, content
To lay your hand in mine, for Love is ours.
