Lyrics of Earth

by Archibald Lampman


 

 

DISTANCE


 

To the distance! Ah, the distance!
    Blue and broad and dim!
Peace is not in burgh or meadow,
    But beyond the rim.

Aye, beyond it, far beyond it;                                                     5
    Follow still my soul,
Till this earth is lost in heaven,
    And thou feelíst the whole.
