And, loving still, these quaint old themes,
Even in the city's throng, I feel the freshness of the streams That, crossed by shades and sunny gleams, Water the green land of dreams,
The holy land of song.
Henry Wadsvoorth Longfellow

Song should like a river flow! Song should bring back scenes and hours
That we loved ah, long ago I
Bryan Waller Procter.

The locust in the haying; And, like the fabled hunter's horn,
Old tunes my heart is playing.
John Oreenleaf Whittier.
