Trumbull Stickney Summer Poems

  • 1.
    I hear a river thro' the valley wander
    Whose water runs, the song alone remaining.
    A rainbow stands and summer passes under.

  • 2.
    It 's autumn in the country I remember.

    How warm a wind blew here about the ways!
    And shadows on the hillside lay to slumber
  • 3.
    How strange that here is nothing as it was!
    The sward is young and new,
    The sod there shapes a different mass,
    The random trees stand other than I knew.
  • 4.
    Only once more and not again--the larches
    Shake to the wind their echo, "Not again,"--
    We see, below the sky that over-arches
    Heavy and blue, the plain

    As sweetens now among the mountain pines

    She had the motion of the rose,
    The bird that veers across the light,
    The waterfall that leaps and throws

Andrew Lang Poem
Melville And Coghill - The Place Of The Little Hand
 by Andrew Lang

DEAD, with their eyes to the foe,
Dead, with the foe at their feet;
Under the sky laid low
Truly their slumber is sweet,
Though the wind from the Camp of the
Slain Men blow,
And the rain on the wilderness beat.
