  • Let me walk a while alone
    Among the sacred rocks and stones
    Let me look in vain belief
    Upon the beauty of each leaf

    There is green in every blade
    The tree tops lean providing shade
    Maypoles spin in happy sound
    All nature's strength around

    And there's a horse that feels no pain
    Its iron strength to take the strain
    Children rock it to and fro
    And gaily drink its colour-glow

    Above, the sky, devoid of cloud
    Thinks not to cast a thunder shroud
    Upon this place so full of joy
    A field of gold of loves employ

    So, why my heavy heart? You say
    When tears would stain
    The sights so gay
    My brother's dreams once here did soar
    Until he died at the hand
    Of needless war
