In the Vale of Llangollen, by Arthur Symons

In the Vale of Llangollen

In the fields and the lanes again!
There's a bird that sings in my ear
Messages, messages;
The green cool song that I long to hear.   It pipes to me out of a tree
Messages, messages;
This is the voice of the sunshine,
This is the voice of grass and the trees.   It is the joy of Earth
Out of the heaven of the trees:
The voice of a bird in the sunshine singing me
