Last Songs from Vagabondia

by Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey


 

CHILD'S SONG

But just across the furthest hill
I know the fairies live.


 

PLEASE, sir, take me in your carriage
And ride me home! You see,
I’ve been to find the fairies
And I’m tired as I can be.

I crossed the meadow and the brook

5
And climbed Rapalye’s hill,
But when I reached the top of it
There was another still.
