William Cosmo Monkhouse Quotes

    The Summer Pool

    THERE is a singing in the summer air,
    The blue and brown moths flutter o’er the grass,
    The stubble bird is creaking in the wheat,
    And perch’d upon the honeysuckle-hedge
    Pipes the green linnet. Oh, the golden world!
    The stir of life on every blade of grass,
    The motion and the joy on every bough,
    The glad feast everywhere, for things that love
    The sunshine, and for things that love the shade!
