Heart o' the North

Published by Susan on 07/22/2003 (5298 reads)
And when I come to the dim trail-end...

And when I come to the dim trail-end,
             I who have been Life's rover,
This is all I would ask, my friend,
       Over and over and over:

A little space on a stony hill
            With never another near me,
Sky o' the North that's vast and still,
               With a single star to cheer me;

Star that gleams on a moss-grey stone
                Graven by those who love me --
There would I lie alone, alone,
            With a single pine above me;

Pine that the north wind whinneys through --
            Oh, I have been Life's lover!
But there I'd lie and listen to
    Eternity passing over.
