A Sierra Song.

A Sierra Song.

Alberta Bancroft. Sunset Magazine, 1906.


THE sound of running water
Is in our ears alway—
A dream-song with us through the night
A dream-song through the day.

Down cañons where the lilies
Shake out a rich perfume.
Past hillsides where azaleas
Show white against the gloom.

And through the mountain meadows
Where willow gardens stand
The whispered running water song
Goes with us down the land.
