“In the morning, in the morning”

By A.E. Housman


In the morning, in the morning,

In the happy field of hay,

Oh they looked at one another

By the light of day.


In the blue and silver morning

On the haycock as they lay,

Oh they looked at one another

And they looked away.


Passing By

(Raymond Carver, Jake Heggie, A. E. Housman, Vachel Lindsay and Edna St. Vincent Millay)
