the face of the fields

the face of the fields

I have loved
the feel of the grass under my feet,
and the sound of the running streams by my side.
The hum of the wind in the tree-tops
has always been good music to me,
and the face of the fields has often comforted me
more than the faces of men.

~John Burroughs, (1837 – 1921)
