VACATION, by            
First Line: I love to lie beside a babbling brook
Last Line: I realize the presence of my god.
Subject(s): Vacation


I love to lie beside a babbling brook,
Where spreads a canopy of leafy boughs,
And listen to the twittering goldfinch gay --
The while I browse the pages of a book,
Or dream perchance of love and you afar,
Or watch the coming of the evening star.

Such leisure brings both rest and rich content --
My face uplifted to the vast unknown --
My thoughts go drifting on in rhythmic mood --
Refreshing breezes bring a woodsy scent;
Lying alone, head pillowed on green sod,
I realize the presence of my God.
