    I HAVE LIVED AND LOVED.

    If I should die, these are the kind of things
    That I have loved and been so thankful for
    The sheen of sun upon a distant hill,
    A keening wind along a lonely shore.

    I have loved evenings when the afterglow
    Cast a warm spell on everything in sight
    When there was music in the very wind
    And magic in the darkness of the night.

    I have loved little street where people dwell,
    And tiny yards where humble flowers grow
    The lonely splendor of the arctic moon
    The swish of northern lights about the snow.

    I have loved peace and quietness, the vast
    Unbroken silence of a prairie night
    And when my heart is dust I shall remember
    A tree with every blossom tipped with light.
