Verse Day – A Song From Sylvan

A Song From Sylvan

The little cares that fretted me,
I lost them yesterday
Among the fields above the sea,
Among the winds at play;
The rustling of the trees,
Among the singing birds,
The humming of the bees.

The fears of what may come to pass,
I cast them all away,
Among the clover-scented grass,
Among the new-mown hay;
Among the husking of the corn,
Where the drowsy poppies nod,
Where ill thoughts die and good are born,
Out in the fields with God.
~Louise Imogen Guiney
