Robert Service

Between the mountain and the sea
      I've made a happy landing;
And here a peace has come to me
      That passeth understanding;
A shining faith and purity
      Beyond demanding.
With palm below and pine above,
      Where wings of gulls are gleaming;
By orange tree and olive grove,
      From walls of airy seeming,
My roses beg me not to rove,
      But linger dreaming.

So I'm in love with life again,
      And would with joy dissever
My days from ways of worldly men,
      And mingle with them never:
Let silken roses to my ken
      Whisper forever.
