Subject(s): Wishes


I am weary, I am wistful,
For the things I have not seen:
For the rolling downs of Shropshire,
For the ever-changing green
Of the Caribbean's waters
As they hiss the tropic shore,
For the white, portentous wonder
Of the ice-floe's grinding roar.

Shall I never mark the shadow
Of Emperor Tsin's Great Wall?
Shall I never hear the magic
Of the Jungle's muted call?
Shall I never wind the Canyon
Where God's own colors glow?
I am weary, I am wistful,
For the things I do not know.
