First Line: A row of lilies stretching white
Last Line: "we have waited long for our own to come."


A row of lilies stretching white
Through garden dusk out into the night;
That was the way for an eager child
To places far and sweet and wild.

Shimmer of moonlight on waving grain,
A far, faint sound as of falling rain --
For a breathless moment, -- could it be?
Led the child to the rim of the sea.

She wandered once to a woodland glade,
The grass was dappled sun and shade;
There she saw, with lilt and swing
The fairies dance in a magic ring.

A row of fir trees standing stark
Against the house in the fragrant dark,
Called to the woman -- she came alone,
"Alien feet tread the old hearthstone."

The windows behind the firs gleamed white,
Though she saw in the house no single light;
But the firs ever beckoned and called, "Come home,
We have waited long for our own to come."
