I'm weary of crowds and commotion,
I'm tired of mobs as they swarm,
And back in my mind is a notion
Again to seek peace on the farm,
To leave all the rush and the rattle,
The conflict that ever is hot,
And gaze on the gentle-eyed cattle
Who browse in the old pasture lot.
I'm sick of the town, and I'm going
Away fro mits hurry that kills,
To the spot where the cattle are low
ing And the wind's blowing sweet from'
Where the ears are untroubled by
And the tumult of cities is not,
And I share in the peace and the
Of the cows in the old pasture lot!
And yet when I've answered my long
To linger awhile in the glade,
I'll probably pine for the thronging
Of people and traffic and trade;
I'll weary of peace and of leisure
And back to the city 111 trot,
And leave with the greatest of pleas
ure The cows to their old pasture lot!
