Katherine Elspeth Oliver. Songs of the Out of Door West, 1922.


HERE’S what I love!
The clean sky above
And the clean wide air,
The mounting plain,
The sweeping rain—
The wind in my hair!
To ride and ride,
Where the land spreads wide
To the darkening hills;
In a splendid race
To the open place
And the life that fills.
To ride and rest
On the hill’s high crest
Under open sky;
And to sleep without fear
Where the stars are near,
And God close by.
