The things to hold divine

These are the things I hold divine:
A trusting child’s hand laid in mine,
Rich brown earth and wind-tossed trees,
The taste of grapes and the drone of bees.

Childs hand

A rhythmic gallop, long June days,
A rose-hedged lane and lovers’ lays,
The welcome smile on neighbors’ faces,
Cool, wide hills and open places.

 welcome smile on neighbors' faces

Breeze-blown fields of silver rye,
The wild, sweet note of the plover’s cry,
Fresh spring showers and scent of box,
The soft, pale tint of the garden phlox.

Fresh spring showers

Lilacs blooming, a drowsy noon,
A flight of geese and an autumn moon,
Rolling meadows and storm-washed heights,
A fountain murmur on summer nights.

Autumn Moon

A dappled fawn in the forest hush,
Simple words and the song of a thrush,
Rose-red dawns and a mate to share,
With comrade soul my gypsy fare.

The Song of a thrush

A waiting fire when the twilight ends,
A gallant heart and the voice of friends.
