One impulse from a vernal wood
May teach you more of man,
Of moral evil and of good,
Than all the ages can.

R

Like living men, moved slowly through the mind
By day, and were a trouble to my dreams.
A
Behold her, single in the field,
Yon solitary Highland lass!
N

Present themselves as objects recognised,
In flashes, and with glory not their own.
K

Perhaps the plaintive numbers flow
For old, unhappy, far-off things
And battles long ago.
