I Hear It Sound Clear


I Hear It

Like a distance wail
I hear a baby's cry so well
Beckoning me to where he dwells
Like a devotee to a church bell

I hear the break of dawn
Hope tomorrow i'll be in town
To see and carry the child that's now grown
I hear it clear like the sound i've forever known

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
