The Mystic
There is a quest that calls me,
   In nights when I am lone,
The need to ride where the ways divide
   The Known from the Unknown.
Old Age
I have heard the wild geese,
I have seen the leaves fall,
There was frost last night
On the garden wall.
When The Wind Is Low
When the wind is low, and the sea is soft,
   And the far heat-lightning plays
On the rim of the west where dark clouds nest
   On a darker bank of haze;
Kinchinjunga (Which Is The Next Highest Of Mountains)

O white Priest of Eternity, around
Whose lofty summit veiling clouds arise
Chanson Of The Bells Of Oseney
