POET'S CORNER FOR OCTOBER, 1997


Mountains

"FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD"

It seems to me I'd like to go
Where bells ne'er ring or whistles blow;
Where clocks ne'er strike and gongs ne'er sound,
But where there's stillness all around.

Not real still stillness---just the trees'
Low whisperings or the croon of bees;
The drowsy tinkling of the rill,
Or twilight song of whippoorwill.

'Twould be a joy could I behold
The dappled fields of green and gold,
Or in the cool, sweet clover lie
And watch the cloud-ships drifting by.

I'd like to find some quaint old boat,
And fold its oars, and with it float
Along the lazy, limpid stream
Where water-lilies drowse and dream.

Sometimes it seems to me I must
Just quit the city's din and dust,
For fields of green and skies of blue;
And, say! how does it seem to you?
