June Bells Flowering Under the trees

Scarce had it rain'd - blue hued
drops showering down; 
in the witching hour I rode, 
where the earth is overrun by weeds, 
yellow fringed with black-eyed-susans; 
trees overhung with wild cherries.

Pacing past the sequester'd glen, 
following the trail where tall beeches grow: 
long sleeved and long limb'd; 
and leaves falling in curling frills.

Then I heard a merry song;
a fiddle played, from the hills beyond.  
soon turning round a winding bend, 
a field of dripping june bells; 
I sighted them, a thousand and more
in blue slippers scatter'd wide.
Seated myself on a moss cover'd stone, 
as one aptly does after a long ride.

Somewhere beats an earthly heart, 
someone breathes a heaving sigh; 
Eyes turn to the darken'd clouds hanging by, 
and to the lowering skies; 
then far to the place where airy spirits roam, 
and to the sepulchred ground 
where unruffled I lie in my grave, 
under the tufts of june bells.
