Inside The Heart Of Housman

Beyond the moor and mountain crest
In valleys green and still
Ten thousand times I've done my best
And all about the idle hill.

When first my way to fair I took
Beneath the blue of day
For willows in the icy brook
In valleys miles away.

When in the moon the long road lies
And down the sighing wind in vain
Spent in star-defeated sighs
And what's to show for all my pain?

Oh, when I was in love with you
To-morrow I shall miss you less
The knot that makes one flesh of two
For a faith the world confessed.
