Afternoon on a Hill by Edna St. Vincent Millay



Afternoon on a Hill

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.

I will look at cliffs and clouds
With quiet eyes,
Watch the wind bow down the grass,
And the grass rise.

And when lights begin to show
Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,
And then start down!
- Edna St.Vincent Millay

Shell, this was a beautiful choice.

This poem spoke to me on many levels.

Thank you so much.
