Where Echo Dwells

Some summer morn immersed in calm,
When every wafture breathes of balm,
Take you the pathway under hill,
Night-haunted by the whippoorwill,
Until, where beech and birch confer,
And hemlocks make their harp-like stir,
A sweeping amphitheatre
Opes, golden green, upon the view;
There Echo dwells, and waits for you.

The elderberry every hour
Adds to the purple of its dower;
With every dusk, with every dawn,
The mandrake fruit takes amber on;
A gossip brook gives happy hint
Of spruce and sassafras and mint;
While overhead, a luring tint,
The vast vault arches, virgin blue;
There Echo dwells, and waits for you.

If you bespeak her loud or low,
At night-heart, or at morning-glow,
Trump-clear, or subtle-sweet and shy,
Swiftly her voice will make reply.
Never beheld, or near or far,
Elusive as blown perfumes are,
Evasive as a falling star,
With all her arid retinue,
Fair Echo dwells, and waits for you!
