I often passed the village

by
 I often passed the village
When going home from school --
And wondered what they did there --
And why it was so still --

I did not know the year then --
In which my call would come --
Earlier, by the Dial,
Than the rest have gone.
It's stiller than the sundown.
It's cooler than the dawn -- The Daisies dare to come here -- And birds can flutter down -- So when you are tired -- Or perplexed -- or cold -- Trust the loving promise Underneath the mould, Cry "it's I," "take Dollie," And I will enfold!
