The Mountain Road

COMING down the mountain road
 Light of heart and all alone,
I caught from every rill that flowed
 A rapture of its own.
 
Heart and mind sang on together,
 Rhymes began to meet and run
In the windy mountain weather
 And the winter sun.
 
Clad in freshest light and sweet
 Far and far the city lay
With her suburbs at her feet
 Round the laughing bay.
 
Like an eagle lifted high
 Half the radiant world I scanned,
Till the deep unclouded sky
 Circled sea and land.
 
No more was thought a weary load,
 Older comforts stirred within,
Coming down the mountain road
 The earth and I were kin.
