  Away To The Hills  

 

                Away to the hills, away!--
            There is health in the summer air;--
        The rustling bough, and the bending spray,
            And the breath of flowers are there--
The honey-bee's hum and the wild bird's song,
And sunshine and summer winds all day long!

                Away to the hills, away!
            There are peace and calmness there--
        White cloudlets floating in light all day
            Through the blue transparent air,--
Rose-tinted mornings and noontides rare,
And sunsets of crimson and gold are there!

                Away to the hills, away!
            From your weariness and care--
        From toil that has held on with tyrant sway,
            To quiet and calmness there;
And bask in the beauty and bloom that fills
The cool, sweet depths of the summer hills!

       - Mrs. J. C. Yule
