Songs from Vagabondia

by Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey


 

A ROVER'S SONG


 

SNOWDRIFT of the mountains,
Spindrift of the sea,
We who down the border
Rove from gloom to glee,—

Snowdrift of the mountains,

5

Spindrift of the sea,
There be no such gypsies
Over earth as we.

Snowdrift of the mountains,
Spindrift of the sea,

10

Let us part the treasure
Of the world in three.

Snowdrift of the mountains,
Spindrift of the sea,
You shall keep your kingdoms;

15
Joscelyn for me!
