My eyes have never seen
Enough of emerald green,
Of lakes with jewel sheen,
Under the spell of the forest's charm,
Held in the crook of a mountain's arm.

My soul is hungry, too,
For the amethystine blue
Of the little hidden bays,
Cut in white and shingly beaches,
Bright with shine of summer days --
Waters bluer than the blue
Of deepest heaven's reaches.

I need the peacefulness
Of waters calm and deep,
To assuage the restlessness
Of a mind that will not sleep.
