We have a tradition in our house
either poems we write
famous poems copied out
Today I received the most beautiful card
from miss is
with this poem
along with beautiful prose from miss is
Afternoon on a Hill
by Edna St. Vincent Millay
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 the lights begin to show
Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,
And then start down!
