Let be true that we shall find
The country of our dreams
And walk the lands overtwined,
And drink from crystal streams.
The barque that we have set adrift
Is nearly out of sight;
But may our days be not so swift
To savour as we might.
Alone we dwell, just you and I,
And lie upon heath;
Our drooping lids succumb to sky,
And this we sleep beneath.
The meadow and the hill we claim,
The forest and the beach;
The country of our dreams became
A land within our reach.
