The sky thro’ the leaves of the bracken
tenderly, pallidly blue,
nothing but sky as I lie on the mountain top.
Hark! for the wind as it blew,
rustling the tufts of my bracken above me,
brought from below
Into the silence the sound of the water.
Hark! for the oxen low,
sheep are bleating, a dog barks,
at a farm in the vale:
Blue thro’ the bracken, softly enveloping,
Silence, a veil.
