Ere We Should Meet

from by Steven C. Davis



The sun blows hot over the peaks,
Down from Hollins Cross.
The grass that bent beneath our feet
Will spring up, and die, and be born again,
Ere we should meet.

Far out to sea the ocean roars
But here in St. Martin’s bay it is still.
The waves that lapped upon the shore
Will rise up, and be cast down again as rain,
Ere we should meet once more.

Upon the hilltop lashes the rain,
But Snowdon is crowned in light.
The paths that over the heights reign
Will be trod a million times or more
Ere we should meet again.
