by John Vance Cheney
She lives, she lives up in the hills,
Where mists and eagles are;
Blithe shepherdess of rocks and rills,
'Twixt mortal and a star.
Of acorns is her necklace made,
And reddest berries found;
While slender vines, in glossy braid,
About her brow are bound.
No fairy foots it half so light,
A dancing on the green;
Nor curls a sunny cloud so bright,
The pines and sky between.
My shepherdess of rocks and rills!
We dwell the world above;
She lives and loves up in the hills,
And I live in her love.
