“There on the hills of summer let me lie
On the cool grass in friendship with the sky.
Let me lie there in love with earth and sun,
And wonder up at the light-foot winds that run,
Stirring the delicate edges of the trees,
And shaking down a music of the seas.”
~Edwin Markham, “At Friends with Life” (American poet, poet laureate of Oregon; 1852 – 1940)
