The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review October 1911

Down in the Valley

Down in the Valley.

Down the valley, lightly leaping,
See a streamlet running,
Trout among the fern-roots sleeping,
Trout in shallows sunning.

Willows, willows, weeping, weeping,
Drooping in the tide,
Elder o'er the greensward sweeping,
Poplars in their pride.

Checkered shadows, gently quivering,
Cross the pathway lying,
Little breezes, foliage shivering,
In the tree-tops sighing.

Evening shadows gently falling,
Sunset's glory paling,
Cuckoos through the twilight calling,
Curlews softly wailing.
