WHAT I LIKE.





To lie with half-closed eyes, as in a dream,

Upon the grassy bank of some calm stream--

And smoke.



To climb with daring feet some rugged rock,

And sit aloft where gulls and curlews flock--

And smoke.



To wander lonely on the ocean's brink,

And of the good old times to muse and think--

And smoke.



To hide me in some deep and woody glen,

Far from unhealthy haunts of sordid men--

And smoke.



To linger in some fairy haunted vale,

While all about me falls the moonlight pale--

And smoke.



H.L.
