VII. Song: “A Greenness o’er My Vision Passed”
By Isa (Craig) Knox (1831–1903)
 
A GREENNESS o’er my vision passed,
A freshness o’er my brain,
Rose up as when I saw them last
The glad green hills again.
 
Amid the streets’ bewildering roar,        5
I heard the rushing stirs
Of vagrant breezes running o’er
The dark tops of the firs.
 
Far round, the wide and swooning view
The bound of chainèd heights;        10
Far off, the dales my footsteps knew,
With all their green delights;
 
Far down, the river winding through
The valley, silver white;
Far up, amid the cloudless blue,        15
The slow sail of the kite.
 
A greenness o’er my vision passed,
A freshness o’er my brain,
Rose up as when I saw them last
The glad green hills again.        20
