by Emily Brontë (1818 - 1848)

Was it with the fields of green
Language: English 
Was it with the fields of green
Blowing flower and budding tree
With the summer heaven serene
That thou didst visit me

No twas not the flowery plain
No twas not the fragrant air
Summer skies will come again
But thou wilt not be there.
