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!

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
