The Answering Voice: One Hundred Love Lyrics by Women.  1917.
 
The Heart’s Country
By Florence Wilkinson
 
HILL people turn to their hills;
  Sea folk are sick for the sea:
Thou art my land and my country,
  And my heart calls out for thee.
 
The bird beats his wings for the open,        5
  The captive burns to be free;
But I—I cry at thy window,
  For thou art my liberty.
