When loud by landside streamlets gush,
And clear in the greenwood quires the thrush,
With sun on the meadows
And songs in the shadows
Comes again to me
The gift of the tongues of the lea,
The gift of the tongues of meadows.
So when the earth is alive with gods,
And the lusty ploughman breaks the sod,
And the grass sings in the meadows,
And the flowers smile in the shadows,
Sits my heart at ease,
Hearing the song of the leas,
Singing the songs of the meadMore Robert Louis Stevenson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I would rather do a good hours work weeding than write two pages of my best; nothing is so interesting as weeding. I went crazy over the outdoor work, and at last had to confine myself to the house, or literature must have gone by the board.More Robert Louis Stevenson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Perpetual devotion to what a man calls his business, is only to be sustained by perpetual neglect of many other things.More Robert Louis Stevenson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
