Afternoon on a Hill
By Edna St. Vincent Millay
I WILL be the gladdest thing
  Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
  And not pick one!
I will look at cliffs and clouds        5
  With quiet eyes,
Watch the wind bow down the grass
  And the grass rise.
And when lights begin to show
  Up from the town        10
I will mark which must be mine,
  And then start down!
