Out in the Fields with God

Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote the following:

The little cares which fretted me

I lost them yesterday,

Among the fields, above the sea,

Among the winds at play,

Among the lowing of the herds,

The rustling of the trees,

Among the singing of the birds,

The humming of the bees.

The foolish fear of what might happen,

I cast them all away

Among the clover-scented grass,

Among the new-mown hay,

Among the husking of the corn,

Where drowsy poppies nod

Where ill thoughts die and good are born–

Out in the fields with God.
