Farewell My Town
Thy day, Thy light, Thy tender bright,
Thy dark, thy cold and thy slow night!
I see through thee! Thy lovely sight.
Living truth, thy youth; hath no might!
No words to say or thing to do! ?
My town, thy gown, beautiful view,
Thy eye, The sky, thy flowing blue.
How mean of that seen, shining too!
Seen them passing by where I read,
They farm thy land, they sow thy seed,
Might be our friends, they are indeed!
Walking by thy river and reed.
Often dull hours I have in thee,
Yet; I won't forget what thou be,
Thou are the spirit of beauty,
Thou are me and my fantasy!
Shall I say farewell my town? bye! ?
A lady Thee seems to my eye,
A Town robed by it lands and sky.
With in thou hope lives; yet dreams die!
