1Grown about by fragrant bushes,
2Sunken in a winding valley,
3    Where the clear winds blow
4    And the shadows come and go,
5    And the cattle stand and low
6And the sheep bells and the linnets
7    Sing and tinkle musically.
8Between the past and the future,
9    Those two black infinities
10    Between which our brief life
11    Flashes a moment and goes out.
