THE MUSIC OF THE GROVE. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 2 May 1925
THE MUSIC OF THE GROVE. 1 heard a thousand blended notes While iu a grove I reclined, In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts Bring sad things to the mind. To her fair works did Nature link The human soul that through me ran And much it grieved my heart to think What Man had done of Man. Through Primrose tufts, iu that sweet .bower, The"periwinkle trail'd its wreaths; And 'tis my faith that every flower Enjoys the air it breathes. The birds around me hopp'd and play'd, Their thoughts I cannot measure— But the least motion, which they made It seemed a thrill of pleasure. 'The budding twigs spread out their fan To catch the breezy air: And I must think, do all I can, That there was pleasure there. If this belief from heaven be sent, If.-Buch be Nature's holy plan, Have I not reason to lament What Man has made of Man? —Wprdewortli.
