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 lights begin to show
Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,
And then start down!


This sounds like a wonderfully peaceful way to spend the rest of this afternoon.

Welcome August!
