Dreamthorp (Fiscle Part-I) A Book Of Essays Written In The Country
It Matters Not To Relate How Or When I Became A Denizen Of Dreamthorp;
It Will Be Sufficient To Say That I Am Not A Born Native, But That I
Came To Reside In It A Good While Ago Now. The Several Towns And
Villages In Which, In My Time, I Have Pitched A Tent Did Not Please,
For One Obscure Reason Or Another; This One Was Too Large, T'other Too
Small; But When, On A Summer Evening About The Hour Of Eight, I First
Beheld Dreamthorp, With Its Westward-Looking Windows Painted By Sunset,
Its Children Playing In The Single Straggling Street, The Mothers
Knitting At The Open Doors, The Fathers Standing About In Long White
Blouses, Chatting Or Smoking; The Great Tower Of The Ruined Castle
Rising High Into The Rosy Air, With A Whole Troop Of Swallows--By
Distance Made As Small As Gnats--Skimming About Its Rents And
Fissures;--When I First Beheld All This, I Felt Instinctively That My
Knapsack Might Be Taken Off My Shoulders, That My Tired Feet Might
Wander No More, That At Last, On The Planet, I Had Found A Home. From
That Evening I Have Dwelt Here, And The Only Journey I Am Like Now To
Make, Is The Very Inconsiderable One, So Far At Least As Distance Is
Concerned, From The House In Which I Live To The Graveyard Beside The
Ruined Castle. There, With The Former Inhabitants Of The Place, I
Trust To Sleep Quietly Enough, And Nature Will Draw Over Our Heads Her
Coverlet Of Green Sod, And Tenderly Tuck Us In, As A Mother Her
Sleeping Ones, So That No Sound From The World Shall Ever Reach Us, And
No Sorrow Trouble Us Any More.
