Afternoon on a Hill - Edna St. Vincent Millay

Afternoon on a Hill

Edna St. Vincent Millay, 1892 - 1950 


I will be the gladdest thing 

Under the sun! 

I will touch a hundred flowers 

And not pick one. 


I will look at cliffs and clouds 

With quiet eyes, Watch the wind bow down the grass, 

And the grass rise. 


And when lights begin to show 

Up from the town, 

I will mark which must be mine, 

And then start down!
