MacMillan and Co., Ltd. London. 1930

As I go home at end of day, the old road,
Through the enchanted country full of my dreams,
By the dim hills, under the pellucid o’er-arching sky,
Home to the West, full of great clouds and the sunset,
Past the cattle that stand in rich grass to the knees,
It is not I who go home: it is not I.
