Poems of Home: V. The Home
Home
Leonidas of Alexandria
 
From the Greek by Robert Bland

CLING to thy home! if there the meanest shed
Yield thee a hearth and shelter for thy head,
And some poor plot, with vegetables stored,
Be all that Heaven allots thee for thy board,—
Unsavory bread, and herbs that scattered grow        5
Wild on the river brink or mountain brow,
Yet e’en this cheerless mansion shall provide
More heart’s repose than all the world beside.
