Two Points of View
 
Lucian B. Watkins
 
 
FROM this low-lying valley; Oh, how sweet
And cool and calm and great is life, I ween,
There on yon mountain-throne—that sun-gold crest!
 
From this uplifted, mighty mountain-seat:
How bright and still and warm and soft and green        5
Seems yon low lily-vale of peace and rest!
