Poem by Robert Laurence Binyon
Earth, I love thee well; And well dost thou requite me. I have no tongue to tell How this day thou hast thrilled With wonder, to delight me, My heart, intensely stilled. On the white--walled knoll I stand And feel beneath me glowing The noon--hushed, lovely land: Hills beyond hills, and few Far towns a faint crest showing Faint in the rounding blue. Blue sea and radiant sky, Blue sky and mountain marry; And the mind, raised up on high, Onward and onward springs; Where'er she choose to tarry, On every side are wings. To the sun the sun--bathed pines Their strength and sweetness render. From where the far foam shines Like the rim of a dazzling shield, All fervent things and tender Life, joy, and perfume yield. Me, too, with mastering charm From husks of dead days freeing, The sun draws up, to be warm And to bloom in this sweet hour; The stem of all my being Waited to bear this flower.
