VERMONT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: My heart is where the hills fling up
Last Line: Lady of liberty!
Subject(s): Vermont


My heart is where the hills fling up
Green garlands to the day;
'T'is where the blue lake brims her cup,
The sparkling rivers play.
My heart is on the mountains still
Where'er my steps may be;
Vermont, O maiden of the hills,
My heart is there with thee!

Oh, you may find a prouder dame,
With jewel at the ear
And richer robe and louder fame,
But never face so dear!
No queen has had for followers
A bolder train of men;
And when again the need is hers
They shall be hers again!

My heart is where the hills fling up
Green garlands to the day;
'T is where the blue lake brims her cup,
The sparkling rivers play.
My heart is on the mountains still;
My steps return to thee,
Green-hooded maiden of the hills,
Lady of Liberty!
