by Frederick William Harvey (1888 - 1957)

In Flanders
Language: English 
Available translation(s): GER
I'm homesick for my hills again -
To see above the Severn plain
Unscabbarded against the sky
The blue high blade of Cotswold lie;
  The giant clouds go royally
  By jagged Malvern with a train
Of shadows.

Where the land is low
Like a huge imprisoning O
I hear a heart that's sound and high,
I hear the heart within me cry:
 "I'm homesick for my hills again -
 Cotswold or Malvern, sun or rain!
My hills again!"
