Amico Suo
Herbert P. Horne (b. 1864)
WHEN on my country walks I go,
  I never am alone:
Though whom’t were pleasure then to know
  Are gone, and you are gone;
From every side discourses flow.        5
There are rich counsels in the trees,
  And converse in the air;
All magic thoughts in those and these
  And what is sweet and rare;
And everything that living is.        10
But most I love the meaner sort,
  For they have voices too;
Yet speak with tongues, that never hurt,
  As ours are apt to do:
The weeds, the grass, the common wort.        15
