see glass lands alive me before ships eye town land

Foreign Lands

 
Up into the cherry tree
Who should climb but little ?
I held the trunk with both my hands
And looked abroad on foreign .
 
I saw the next-door garden lie,
Adorned with flowers, before my ,
And many pleasant faces more
That I had never seen .
 
I saw the dimpling river pass
And be the sky’s blue looking- ;
The dusty roads go up and down
With people tramping in to .
 
If I could find a higher tree
Farther and farther I should ,
To where the grown-up river slips
Into the sea among the ,
 
To where the roads on either hand
Lead onward into fairy ,
Where all the children dine at five,
And all the playthings come .
