Last Line: Flashes a moment and goes out
Alternate Author Name(s): Stevenson, Robert Lewis Balfour
Subject(s): Nature

There where the land of love,
Grown about by fragrant bushes,
Sunken in a winding valley,
Where the clear winds blow
And the shadows come and go,
And the cattle stand and low
And the sheep bells and the linnets
Sing and tinkle musically.
Between the past and the future,
Those two black infinities
Between which our brief life
Flashes a moment and goes out.
