A.E. & Me

Some day I’ll go to Ludlow town      And walk the hillsides all around. I’ll pause beneath the Aspen tree,       To see if it will speak to me.  I’ll make my way to Ludlow fair       And kiss the rose-lipt maidens there,   Taste the salt of Severn Shore       And leave my tracks upon the moor.  I’ll walk the path Rose Harland took      And stop beside the bubbling brook. Perhaps I’ll see the Red Coats there,       Or smell the smoke on Ludlow air.  And if my three score year and ten,      Could, perchance, repeat again,   The heart within me would be glad       If I could be a “Shropshire Lad.”
