  1. In the Green Mountains

    by Jessie Belle Rittenhouse

    I dare not look away
    From beauty such as this,
    Lest, while my glance should stray,
    Some loveliness I miss.

    The trees might choose to print
    Their shadow on the lake;
    The windless air might glint
    With aspen leaves that shake.

    Over the mountains there
    A thin blue veil might drift;
    Then in a moment rare
    This thin blue veil might lift.

    Ah, I must pay good heed
    To beauty such as this,
    Lest, in some hour of need,
    Its loveliness I miss.
