Hills of Home
 
Witter Bynner (1881–1968)
 
 
NAME me no names for my disease,
    With uninforming breath;
I tell you I am none of these,
    But homesick unto death—
 
Homesick for hills that I had known,        5
    For brooks that I had crossed,
Before I met this flesh and bone
    And followed and was lost….
 
And though they break my heart at last,
    Yet name no name of ills.        10
Say only, “Here is where he passed,
    Seeking again those hills.”
