To the Hills around Northampton
By Dorothy Butts
From “The Passers-by”

LITTLE New England hills,
How tenderly
You gather in this bit of world
To comfort me,
Encircling all I love        5
As I would do
Had arms the reach of heart!
Small hills of blue,
If, having grown to be
More tall than you,        10
I shall be forced to see
The farther view,
How shall I feel
The solace of your rounded form against the sky,
Unless I kneel?        15
