Not illustrated. 1909 edition. Excerpt: ...has just begun. The noontide sunlight shimmers down On varying reaches, red and brown; On hillsides, with their glittering crown Of yellow, rip'ning grain. While meadow lands and banks of green Are in the lowlier canyons seen, Curving the rising hills atween, Toward the wid'ning plain, Where southward Walla Walla lies, Resting beneath the sunny skies; While round her blue the mountains rise, Guarding her fair domain.

Cast off thought for awhile, Or the thoughts that care brings, And drink in the breath of the morn. Gather buds...show more
