"Come ye into the summer woods; There entereth no annoy; All greenly wave the chestnut leaves, And the earth is full of joy.

"I cannot tell you half the sights Of beauty you may see, The bursts of golden sunshine, And many a shady tree."

- Mary Howitt.

"The green trees Partake the deep contentment; as they bend To the soft winds, the sun from the blue sky Looks in and sheds a blessing on the scene. Scarce less the cleft-born wild flower seems to enjoy Existence than the winged plunderer That sucks its sweets. The mossy rocks themselves, And the old and ponderous trunks of prostrate trees That lead from knoll to knoll a causey rude Or bridge the sunken brook, and their dark roots With all their earth upon them, twisting high, Breathe fixed tranquillity. The rivulet Sends forth glad sounds, and tripping o'er its bed Of pebbly sands, or leaping down the rocks, Seems, with continuous laughter, to rejoice In its own being."

- Bryant.
